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
Antonio and me leave in the room so at any time you can refer to us for every requirement
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.
Very welcoming hosts, genuine and helpful. The listing was accurate- the room was spacious and warm (in Feb). A lovely way to experience Neapolitan local life rather than staying in a tourist area. A great advert for Naples and its people. Thanks, it was great to meet you and experience your warmth and generosity
Impressive house, well located and very nice host. The room was by far the best you can get for this price... Many artistic details, clean and chic. Will definitely stay there whenever we come back to Naples...
Massimo e Antonio ci hanno accolti nel migliore dei modi, creando un'atmosfera familiare e sofisticata allo stesso tempo. Grazie al loro gusto e alla loro disponibilità hanno portando in casa un po' della bellezza e dei colori di Napoli. Punto di partenza perfetto per visitare i centri di maggior interesse, questa casa è stata sempre la meta alla quale volevamo tornare per rilassarci un po', tra un'opera d'arte e due chiacchiere sul divano. Assolutamente consigliato!
Massimo and Antonio are great host. Friendly and extremely helpful. We had to deal with a few unexpected circumstances during our stay in Napoli and Massimo was absolutely fantastic. The apartment is gorgeous and our room was very comfortable. Indeed it has a balcony on a busy street, but during our stay that didn't bother us at all. The plus of a balcony with a view on a wide street in a charming town as Napoli is great.
Napoli è una città ricca di cultura e di cose interessanti da visitare e Massimo ed Antonio sono senz'altro due guide importanti per la città oltre che due host disponibili e simpatici. L'appartamento è in un palazzo signorile, in un'ottima posizione per chi vuole visitare il cuore di Napoli e corrisponde esattamente alle immagini. La commistione di uno spazio abitativo e una galleria d'arte (con opere molto interessanti) rende l'ambiente ancora più caratteristico. Assolutamente consigliato!
Massimo is a gracious and generous host. He welcomed us and gave us a brief but valuable overview of the city, including recommendations for cafes, restaurants and attractions. The apartment has a lot of character. It's in a grand but crumbling old building and the renovations Massimo e Antonio have made are very beautiful. They have a great aesthetic and it was interesting to see the art in their gallery. The Passolini Room opens out on the busy Via Foria, so for quiet we needed to keep the windows shut at night.

Hello, I am Massimo! I am the owner with Antonio of an art gallery and guest house in Naples.
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
