"Galleria Umberto I" Top 5 Page for this destination Galleria Umberto - Shopping District Tip by ruki


Galleria Umberto I is the second gallery in Naples and the busiest. It was built during urban renewal following a cholera epidemic and the "legge speciale" of 1885. The project was by engineer Emanuele Rocco, and then modified by Ernest Di Mauro and Antonio Curri. In 1890 the Salone Margherita (destined to become the famous singing café) and the Galleria were inaugurated. The architecture joins the new Renaissance façade with beautiful glass and iron roofing.
