Art & Hospitality
PrimoPiano (300sm) is a place where artists can not only exhibit their works but even live together with the owners and "turists" to fully experience the city and its pulsations. Thus HomeGallery doesn’t betray the word, it’s a real Home with places to stay. Rooms have been conceived to host both people and ideas.
The Gallery (exhibition area of 100 sq metres) and the 3 rooms in the name of Diane Nemerov Arbus, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Francis Bacon, are in the historical building Palazzo Ruffo di Castelcicala (1690). Primo Piano is a place where the architecture and decoration of the past are linked to the present with new architectural and design touches. PrimoPiano is in Via Foria, one of he most beautifull street of the old town, very close to the Madre (Museum of contemporary Art), from the National Archeological Museum, from Real Orto Botanico, and close to the Cathedral of San Gennaro, Patron Saint of Naples, famous for the miracle of the liquefaction of the blood which takes place twice a year. Close the Cathedral the Museum of the Tesoro di San Gennaro, with the reachest collection of jewls of the world. Very close to PrimoPiano the two lines of the underground easyily reachable wolking in few minutes. All around PrimoPiano is full of restaurants, pizzerias, cantinas, some of them very famous for fish food ad Zuppa o Impepata di cozze (mussels).
I is also very easy to reach the Railway Station and the airport.
We will be very happy to walcome you in the city with more than two thousand years of history.
Our Guests can use public areas to work, to read, to have conversation with us, so they are not obliged to stay all the time in the rooms. To reach the rooms our guests will cross the Gallery, so they will leave between art!
Interaction with Guests

Via Foria is one of the most important street in Naples, has been used by the King 8during the Kingdom) to go in and out from the Town. Here you can visit the Royal Botanical Garden, the Archeological Museum, the Museum for Contemporary Arts. In this street you will find some excellent restaurants as : A Cucin e Mamma, a typical neapolitan trattoria (excellent antipasti) and A Figlia d'o Marenaro where you can eat the famous Zuppa di Cozza and see food. Just in front of Botanical Gardens there a very good pasticceria "Leopoldo"
Just outside the building there is a bus stop where you can take the bus n201 to go Molo Beverello from where you can go to the Islands of Ischia, Capri and Procida. Close by the lines 1 and 2 of the undergrounds.
Other Things to Note
For our guests special reduction of 20% on the price of the art works exhibited in the gallery
It is not allowed to host other people in the rooms in night time. It is allowed to invite friends but just during daylight and in public areas. It is forbidden to smoke in the rooms , but you can do it outisde the balcony or in some public areas. The have to respect every single thing in the apartment as they do in their place.
The apartment was incredibly unique and looked exactly like the photos. It's a melting pot of original art in an amazing part of town. Massimo e Antonio were wonderful hosts, providing suggestions when you asked and giving you privacy when you need. They were also fantastic as our luggage was delayed coming in to Napoli so suggested local shops to buy essential supplies a seven helped calling the airport to help us track down our bags.
There is nothing I can fault with PrimoPiano, an amazing gem in a wonderful part of the city. Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful stay!

Massimo was a wonderful host! We loved staying at the art gallery. It was airy, spacious, comfortable...one of our favorite places we stayed during our trip! Also, the wifi was incredibly fast and always worked. The breakfast was delicious and filling as well :) thank you Massimo!
The location was very easy to find, very close to the metro station. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. It was a special treat to have the shower in the bedroom as the weather in Napoli was VERY hot during our stay.
A charmingly quaint high-ceilinged room with sparsely elegant modern décor; a serene gallery hung with stunningly beautiful photographs; a delightful couple of culturally sophisticated and wrily humorous hosts; a delicious breakfast on old china that looked like a still life by one of the gallery's resident photographers; a heritage building from the late seventeenth century with a quiet cortile, a nobleman's family crest with a sculpted horse, and a grand staircase leading up to the primo piano gallery -- these are a few of the happy memories my partner John and I will treasure from our all-too-brief stay with Massimo and Antonio. The Pasolini Room was the very first space we booked on Airbnb. We cannot imagine a better experience, for the room was a lively haven after the lively, at times raucous, always exciting streets of downtown Naples. We hope to come back to the city someday, and when we do, we will definitely book the Pasolini Room again. Its unique character as a space of aesthetic meditation and touristic comfort is revealed in Massimo's book of photographs (entitled "As You Like It") which we found on a side table opposite the big comfortable bed. If you book The Pasolini Room, make sure you look at all the images in this volume and read the accompanying text. It greatly appealed to our postmodern sense of participatory creativity.
Great room and great location. Massimo was a great host and gave us wonderful recommendations.
Great apartment, just as described. Good central location and Massimo and Antonio where very welcoming.
Pour notre première expérience AirBnb et en plus à Naples, ce fut une réussite. Nous avons pu nous promener dans la galerie, avec une sélection d'œuvres uniques curratées par Massimo et Antonio. Notre chambre nous manque déjà ! Je vous conseille vivement de vous y rendre, d'autant plus si vous souhaitez trouver un peu de tranquillité après une journée dans la ville et son énergie débordante, c'est l'endroit idéal. Merci pour vos bonnes adresses et petits déjeuners. À bientôt nous l'espérons. Natacha et Constance

I am a visual artist and I use photography to express my self.
In 2006 we founded PrimoPiano a Home-Gallery dedicated to visual arts with particular attention to photography . The Space PrimoPianohas been created to house exhibitions on Photography and, to a lesser extent, Design. PrimoPiano is a place where artists can not only exhibit their works but even live together with the owners and other artists to fully experience the city and its pulsations, is a place where the architecture and decoration of the past are linked to the present with new architectural and design touches. PrimoPiano Gallery (100 square meters of exhibition halls) have been conceived to host both people and ideas. PP is a real Home with places to stay. The 3 thematic rooms are dedicated respectively to Diane Nemerov Arbus, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Francis Bacon, three different artists linked by a fundamental element: photography. The three rooms and gallery located in the historic Palazzo Ruffo di Castelcicala (1690) in one of the most charming streets of Naples. Via Foria, the writer Anna Maria Ortese called “Great Street” is the city’s main artery that comes from the National Archaeological Museum until Real Albergo dei Poveri
