The Ipogeo dei Cristallini

medusa ipogeo dei cristallini

A unicum of history, archeology, myths and colors

The Ipogeo dei Cristallini is a rare and incredible testimony of Hellenistic painting and architecture, located in the heart of the Sanità-Vergini district. The four spaces of the Ipogeo reveal to visitors a world that is still alive, full of decorations and refined trompe l’oeil effects. Also on display is the rich collection of ancient artifacts and vases still magnificently preserved.

A journey back in time of 2300 years: an experience that will allow you to descend into the mysterious “underground world”, contemplating the extraordinary beauty of ancient art and crafts, understanding the timeless meaning of life and death, of love and of care, family and friendship.

The ambitious restoration project is partly financed with European funds / Campania Region (Por Campania Fesr 2014-2020), and is carried out under the high surveillance and scientific coordination of the Archaeological, Fine Arts and Landscape Soprintendenza for the Municipality of Naples, in collaboration with the Central Institute for Restoration of Rome.
