The Coral and Cameos Jewellery Museum Ascione lies in Naples in Galleria Umberto I opposite the opera-Teatro di San Carlo and near the Royal Palace of Naples. At the same place another museum can be found as a tribute to the past generations engaged in this successful activity. It also includes a didactic and an artistic sections, displaying not only hundreds of jewels as witnesses of red coral and cameo manufacture from 1805 to 1950, but also ancient documents, tools, machinery and pictures to revive and to go on along a journey started 150 years ago.
