The center is located in one of the park’s buildings, called ‘Capraia’, thanks to the cooperation between the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History in Dallas and the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples. The 18th-century building will house researchers and host workshops and seminars to study the history of the Mediterranean through their port cities, as well as create a new network connecting communities in the area through academic research.
”I am very proud to inaugurate the Center of studies of Capraia – said Sylvain Bellenger, director of the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte – the first part of a great cultural campus in Capodimonte, which is increasingly multidisciplinary and means to offer visitors all forms of art and culture. Studying how art and architecture in Naples was influenced by the city’s port is very interesting for us”.
The first young researchers who have been selected hail from the US and the Great Britain and will be followed by others.
”I am extremely proud that this project will take place in Naples”, commented Pietro Spirito, president of the Authority that includes the port of Naples. ”The project will focus on studying the artistic and social connections between historic cities and ports and represents a truly innovative approach to establish the strengthening of a connection that lies in the architectural, economic and artistic heritage of ports. Naples is the ideal base to offer the international community this new model of cultural contamination, which is able to read in a different way the connection between maritime identity and the socio-economic context. And it is important for me that this connection becomes common heritage, thanks to the results that researchers from this first phase will present, in a year, at the end of their studies”. (ANSAmed).
