Have you ever seen many diamonds, rubies and emeralds?

Do you believe that a jewels was so precious to save the life of a king?

Do you know that pairs of earrings are the symbol against the plague? Would you feel protected by 54 Saints?

You have to go in the Museum of the Treasure of St. Januarius that is more precious than Queen Elizabeth’s treasure. The treasure of St. Januarius has been saved by the Deputation for many centuries.

The Chapel of Neapolitan people

It is in the cathedral but it does not belong to the Church. The Royal chapel is independent. There are many paintings, silver busts, the relics of the Saint patron of the town and it is a baroque masterpiece. Besides, it has a wonderful acoustics and it was the second conservatory in Naples. Unmissable.

St. Januarius and his miracle

St. Januarius is a special saint because , for Neapolitan people, he represents the hope, the devotion, the intimacy, the power and popular pride. Every year, the three dates of his miracle are inexplicable and also his history is mysterious and fascinating.

DO YOU KNOW THAT…?

Visiting Naples means visiting San Gennaro

The richest treasure in the world (richer than the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom). Absolute must

Well I'm suspicious to say something about the cathedral of the saint that my name and my history came from. Putting the emotions beside, I really get impressed by the conservation of the images walls and the whole cathedral. Its seems like it was made not so long time ago and this makes you feel like been part of that. Enjoy the experience because it's very pure.

Small museum which is dimly lit but to great effect as this highlights the shine of the amazing treasures found here. Cheap entry around €6, quiet early in the day.

L' Antisacrestia è tra gli ambienti più suggestivi dello straordinario percorso espositivo del museo. Gli affreschi di Francesco e Nicola Rossi (1744) decorano interamente le pareti come in una grande scenografia.
Più antico e di particolare pregio è il lavamani in marmo di Francesco Valentino (1615), poi arricchito da una coppia di delfini disegnati dallo sculture Dioniso Lazzari nel 1668.

Simile ad una mano ritrovata nel porto di Cartagena in Spagna è la Mano sabazia proveniente da Ercolano del I sec. d. C.
Questa mano ha il pollice, l'indice e il medio, allungati e l'anello e il mignolo piegati sul palmo, che rappresenta il gesto della "mano della benedizione". Sempre a rilievo appaiono una serie di figure, tra le quali spicca il dio Sabazio che è seduto, con i piedi sulla testa di un ariete. Un serpente viaggia sul dorso della mano per opporsi alla figura umana di Dio.

Nella sua parte inferiore, il pezzo mostra anche la scena di una donna che allatta un bambino, un'ara fiammeggiante e un coltello per il sacrificio. Ci sono anche contenitori, strumenti a percussione, diverse figure e motivi che identificano Sabazio, dio di origine frigia, con Giove, quindi a volte viene chiamato Giove-Sabazio.
Ci sono anche elementi nella mano, come la vite che la assimila ai culti di Dioniso ed Hermes.

La forza distruttiva del grande vulcano e la forza creativa dell’arte a confronto nella mostra Vulcanica. Il fuoco che crea.
