The White Museum

Explore a dispersed modern art collection assembled by hotel founder Tonino Cacace to reflect the spirit of Anacapri


Capri Palace Jumeirah is first and foremost a hotel and art destination. The White Museum, a dispersed gallery that recounts the spirit of Anacapri and the vision of those who wish to offer clients not only hospitality, but also the privilege to live history.

As you step in the hotel, you will at once come face to face with a 40mt long site-specific artwork resembling a sea bed – a fiberglass Atlantis by Arnaldo Pomodoro. Placed by the swimming pool, it allows glimpses of the mosaic pool floor by Velasco Vitali. The helmet by Mimmo Paladino, once in the Castel dell'Ovo, sits next to the sliding doors while the Ettore e Andromaca, a 1960 painting by Giorgio De Chirico, enriches the reception.

The large painting by Allen Jones, hanging over the bar, depicts a female mannequin coming out of its canvas. Furthermore, the traditional boat with two prows used in the past to enter and exit the Blue Grotto is a work by Fabrizio Plessi, Azzurra, a powerful reminder of the Mediterranean. Finally, works inspired by Warhol, Magritte, Miró Kandinsky and Mondrian adorn several of the suites.

Capri Palace Jumeirah and its art museum await you.
