Museo Capodimonte, Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe
The Gabinetto dei disegni e delle stampe owns more than 2,900 drawings and watercolours and circa 24,000 prints. Famous is the Farnese Collection, coming from the collection of the librarian Fulvio Orsini (1529-1600), later inherited by Cardinal Odoardo Farnese (1573-1626), with a focus on sixteenth- and seventeenth- centuries Parmense, Bolognese and Roman drawings. Other important collections are that of 20,518 drawings and prints of the Count Carlo Firmian (1716-1782), imperial ambassador in Naples between 1754 and 1758, and the collection of Indian drawings of the Cardinal Stefano Borgia (1731-1804). In 1970, the donation Astarita, made up for the most part of works by Giacinto Gigante, has also been added.
