The Space

“As long as there will be the true Neapolitan, there will be, when there will be no more,will be others. The Neapolitans have decided to become extinct, until the last remaining Neapolitan, that is unique, irreducible and incorruptible. “

Dedicated to Pier Paolo Pasolini, the room measures 25 square meters. Inside a large glazed shower and sink, a desk, closet and sitting area. The room has a balcony overlooking Via Foria. Heating. Dedicated outdoor toilet. Double or single use with the possibility of adding a third bed.

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.

  • We stayed at PrimoPiano 4 day's the last week in june. You'd be foolish not to follow the advice of Massimo and Antonio. They know Naples like the back of their hands, and we followed all their suggestions.
    Massimo and Antonio's attention for detail is noticable in all of the rooms and gallery spaces. They made excellent choises for art and interior and it's a fun space to stay in. They're warm and friendly and we loved Napoli...would go back in a second!

  • Massimo and Antonio have the most wonderful apartment in an excellent position in Naples close to the narrow lane ways and historic buildings. Returning from the vibrant streets to our serene room in the evenings was lovely. Our room was beautiful and they were gracious hosts, thank you

  • Massimo and Antonio are truly amazing. They care so much and have set up an amazing place. Massimo is a very talented and very humble artist and this is reflected not only in his photography but the sancturary they share with their guests. The toilet is in the corridor which I was a little concerned about but it is privately accessed and was not an issue. We regret we were unable to get to know them personally.

  • Great building, great space. Unique combination of gallery and bed&breakfast. We loved our room (Pasolini room). Great eye for detail. Original art. Loved the high ceiling and the combination of old (floor), new (art, shower) and industrial. Our hosts gave us good advice about the neighbourhood and places to go. Absolutely must go for everybody who likes to sleep in original, arty space!

  • We stayed 3 nights in Massimo & Antonio's place. It is very special and artistic. It is in an old and impressive building in a wing on the first floor. It is also an art gallery and when we were there, there were even performances.
    Massimo was very helpful with suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants and parking the car and getting it out of the narrow garage:). Both make you feel at home.
    Our room was very large with high ceiling and shower. The interior design is a mix of vintage and modern.
    The location of the place is convenient. Short walk to the centro storico and the metro.
    I would definitely recommend this unique place, its an experience you will remember.

    Thanks, Erik and Thomas

  • Our Naples Airbnb felt like a true European experience, for its location and interior design – it was everything we expected. Massimo was not there to check us in but his very nice friend watching over the hotel gave us a map and guide to the city, which he assured us was safe and we did feel safe. Breakfast was so beautiful the first day, we were pleasantly surprised of the offering and I think it set high expectations because the second day when we only found cereal/granola with no milk or yogurt we felt a little disappointed and hungry. A dinner reco, not close to the hotel but amazing is Umberto’s, it was an online recommendation and it turned out to be the best meal we had in Italy.

  • The perfect way to experience Napoli! It was the last stop of our one-month long Europe trip, and we had the most amazing experience at PrimoPiano. It is located in a very safe area in Napoli and still close to lots of local attractions. We pretty much walked everywhere and enjoyed every corner of the streets.
    The rooms were emaculate and so awesome that I felt like it was permanent installations for the gallery. Our room was very spacious and had lots of natural light. Every furniture and decoration were very well put together, so I couldn't stop taking pictures of the room.
    Breakfast was provided every morning with freshly brewed coffee, yogurt with cereal/granola, and bread/pastries. We met other guests at the breakfast table some mornings and had very pleasant conversations.
    The highlight of the stay was definitely the hosts. Massimo and Antonio are very very friendly and hospitable - not to mention artistic. They are also very knowledgeable about the area and have really good recommendations. We were very honored to have stayed with such nice people at their awesome gallery.

  • La chambre correspondait exactement à nos attentes.
    L'accueil était parfait, chaleureux, et très sympathique.
    L'appartement est facilement accessible, en plein centre de Naples. Il est situé dans une rue active et passante mais les menuiseries protègent du bruit.

  • Nous avons vraiment adoré notre séjour dans le B&B de Massimo à Naples. Un accueil très chaleureux nous a été réservé et Massimo a pris tout le temps nécessaire pour nous communiquer spontanément plein d'informations utiles sur Naples, les visites, les petits restaurants… La décoration de la chambre, très spacieuse, est vraiment très réussie, et l'endroit est unique car il s'agit aussi d'un lieu d'exposition de photographies. Bref, nous sommes enchantés d'avoir passé ces cinq jours chez Massimo et nous recommandons vivement son adresse pour votre prochain séjour à Naples.
