Situated between the San Carlo Theatre and Via Toledo, the arcade was built to eliminate a series of ill-famed alley-ways. It now bears the neo-Renaissance features given to it by Antonio Curri and Ernesto Di Mauro who, between 1887 and 1890, completed the design drawn up by the engineer Emanuele Rocco. The interior is distinguished by its central octagonal plan and asymmetrical cross-shape, embellished by its polychrome marble floor. In the centre, a large circular decoration shows the Signs of the Zodiac and a Compass with the Cardinal Points. The barrel-vaulted ceiling is made of long panes of glass, while a large dome opens in the centre. The arcade contains bars and elegant shops. It is a well-known meeting place for artists from the world of theatre and music. The famous "Salone Margherita", Naples' last café chantant, also used to be here, below street level, but has now been closed for many years.
