The Masks 

Main characteristics of this room

The room features pictures and smaller paintings portraying masks, among which, the typical Neapolitan mask, Pulcinella.

  • Secondly, it represents the theatricality of the Neapolitan Comedy, very well known all over the world, thanks to famous people like Eduardo De Filippo, Sofia Loren, Toto’ (Antonio De Curtis, the Prince of Laughs).
