Originally the "Gran Caffè", in 1890 it was renovated by Antonio Curri in the neoclassical, classical and Liberty styles, with splendid frescoes and paintings by the greatest artists of nineteenth-century Naples. The political, urban and moral hub of the city, here D'Annunzio wrote the verses of his "A vucchella", Edoardo Scarfoglio and Matilde Serao launched the daily "Il Corriere di Roma"; and Croce, Russo, Wilde, Hemingway and Sartre came to sit. Part of the building was turned into a bank by the Fascist prefect in 1938, but in 2001 it won back its stunning rooms overlooking Piazza del Plebiscito.
