Galleria Umberto I

A typical example of architecture Umberto - similar to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan - the Gallery of Naples is one of the most impressive buildings of its kind in Italy, for the majesty of iron and glass architecture and magnificent proportions.

Its construction, decided after the cholera epidemic of 1884, back into the general program of urban renewal area, densely populated and too unhealthy. The gallery features a beautiful transparent cover to iron structure with a dome 57 feet high, set to an octagon of 36 feet.

Also note the beautiful floor mosaics and polychrome marble with winds and signs of the zodiac Padoan signed by the Company of Venice, which they created in 1952 to replace the original damaged by trampling and war.

From the gallery leads to the famous Teatro Margherita, circular room, once covered by an umbrella whose original designs in "Belle Epoque" is unfortunately badly preserved. Famous in the past as a meeting place for intellectuals and artists, the gallery is still one of the most visited sites in the city.
