"HONESTA VOLUPTAS - The Garden of Axel Munthe, brought to light by Jordi Mestre"

19 January - 31 March 2023
The exhibition, curated by Munthe's niece, Katriona Munthe, and by Michele Iodice, retraces the biography of the Swedish doctor Axel Munthe, who was in love with both archaeology and nature and who is closely tied to our region, since he chose to build his residency on the island of Capri, at Villa San Michele.

Katriona Munthe is the custodian of the memories of one of the most significative personalities of the 20th century and it was her decision to open up family's archives, selecting 140 photographs, dating to the early 20th century, which immediately reflect her grandfather's passion for the classical world: a real existential adventure, starting from Naples and from the heart of the Mediterranean, to testify the active research of Beauty. The restoration of the photos is the result of the work of Catalan master Jordi Mestre, one of the greatest expert in this field. The exhibition also includes garden plants and two figures of Axel Munthe and of Amedeo Maiuri.
