51 reviews of Galleria Umberto I

By architect Emanuele Rocco

The glass dome roof of the First Galleria Umberto of Naples corresponds to the type of architecture that was popular in the nineteenth century. Constructed 1887-1889 and designed by architect Emanuele Rocco, who followed religiously the fashion canons of that wonderful time and raised the glass structure with a stunning iron frame of such dimensions that when you enter you don't have to even lift your head to see where the light comes from. The glass roof and dome are harmoniously implanted on the lower structure, but it's definitely the top of this construction that takes the cake.

Galleria Umberto I

The Galeria Umberto I is similar to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and is located in Milan, and one of the biggest attractions for tourists in Naples. A huge crystalled space with light where there are stores, restaurants and banks. There are 4 entrances and now it is in the process of restoration, the enormous metal structure at the shore of the ocean needs some fixing and continues to be conserved. It´s beautiful construction is obligatory to see if you visit Naples.
