The museum houses the collections Farnese and Bourbon which are the main parts of the museum of Capodimonte. The origin of the Farnese collection must be political action and the cultural choices of Alessandro Farnese (1468-1549), who, even before he became pope under the name of Paul III, he had cultivated the interest in collecting art and antiques.
