The premises of the Centro di Musica Antica are part of a complex of historical buildings (Convent and Church of Santa Caterina da Siena) once known as the Conservatorio della Solitaria. ...
Since 1996, the Centro di Musica Antica has been promoting a wide-ranging cultural project based on the recuperation of the vast musical heritage constituted in Naples during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
