The Museum of Villa Amendola has historical origins spanning three centuries, from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century. The Villa was built in the second half of the eighteenth century and was surrounded by a large park that preserved valuable trees and exotic plants: sequoias, banana trees and oleander trees, horse chestnuts, oaks and magnolias, ash, pine and fir. The garden is the most interesting part of the monumental complex, thanks to the restoration and conservation. The Villa consists of two buildings and preserves a "turret" original. The first floor of the Villa hosts cultural events and the Civic Museum. The Civic Museum houses inside the permanent collection, which is the testimony of a former private mansion built during Caracciolo government. Documents, statues, photographs and cameos make up the collection that can be admired today in the Civic Museum. Today the villa is home to the ground floor a section dedicated to the Campania wine with a series of wine events to promote local crafts.
