Naples Historical and Musical Museum – Heirlooms and rare instruments

0
In addition to one of the world's most important music libraries, the Conservatorio di Musica San Pietro a Majella also houses a remarkable collection of museum items. There is a valuable collection of musicians' and composers' memorabilia. The centre also exhibits antique instruments of very fine workmanship or used by illustrious personalities, such as the pianos that belonged to Paisiello and Cimarosa, donated by Catherine II of Russia, or a rare example of a diatonic harp (only three exist) made by Antonio Stradivari, or a harpsichord from 1636 by Andreas Ruckers. Portraits of famous musicians complete the collections, including Domenico Morelli's Gioachino Rossini, Francesco Saverio Altamura's Richard Wagner and Filippo Palizzi's Saverio Mercadante, among others.
