The Museum of Capodimonte collaborates with other museums and cultural institutions, nationally and internationally, to the realization of art exhibitions. The lending of artworks and exchange relationships between institutions increase the value of the museum and provide a platform through which is possible to attract the interest and support for projects and initiatives, helping to raise awareness in the world of the Museum of Capodimonte as a notable center for visual arts, with a prestigious permanent collection.

To enhance the experience of visiting the Museum, we invite you therefore to read the list of the objects on loan, to check in advance if the artwork to which you are particularly interested in is out for exhibitions.

The list takes into account those artworks usually included throughout the exhibition, and does not include the artworks in storage. Additionally, the dates indicated refer to the duration of various exhibitions, not including the necessary time required for preparation, transport and mounting of the objects from and to the Museum of Capodimonte.
