Photos and the City

destination photography & travel

On my daily walk through Via Toledo I always saw this advertisment for Caravaggios supposed last painting „Martirio di Sant‘ Orsola“ (The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula) at Palazzo Zevallos – as I always have been quite fascinated by the story of Saint Ursula and admire Caravaggios work I simply had to visit.

At this time there was a music festival going on in Naples and as soon as I entered the Palazzo I was created by a piano concert and stopped some time to listen to the music (and admire the amazingly beautiful glass ceiling).

Built in the late 1630ies the Palazzo was bought by the Banca Commerciale Italiana in the late 19th century and reconstructed (a marble staircase installed and the glass ceiling over the inner courtyard). Since 2014 it serves as a museum.
