The MANN is considered one of the world's most important archaeological museums and is situated in the Palazzo del Real Museo (1585), one of those monumental edifices in the center of Naples. The museum accommodates an impressive number of findings from prehistory to late-imperial Roman art plus absolute masterpieces forming part of the Farnese collection (from Ancient Rome) and the Pompeiian collections (from Pompeii, Herculanum, Stabiae and Boscoreale).
