Naples boasts some of the world’s best opera houses and theaters and is often called an open-air museum because of its many historic statues and monuments. In addition to the historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, other must-see attractions include the city of Pompeii, buried under ash in 79 AD, and the volcano responsible for its destruction, Mount Vesuvius. The Suor Orsola Benincasa University’s main office is located in a former monastery on the city’s slopes, with a wonderful view of the gulf and the metropolis. Founded in 1864, the university today has three faculties, with seven undergraduate programs, as well as schools starting from the elementary level up to high school. The institute also houses the Toy Museum of Naples, whose curators have chosen USM Haller display cases to showcase the precious items in the collection. With their transparency and lightness, USM furniture is a worthy stage for the exhibits, artfully illuminating the toys with integrated LED lighting. The “Principessa” meeting room and the “Villani” conference space, with its impressive boiserie panels, are both furnished with USM Kitos tables that can be joined together. Their technically sophisticated design promotes creative dialogue between scientists when they get together to “toy” around with ideas.
