A family tale and a commercial endeavor, which in the past two centuries have become one successful enterprise.
This family tradition started in 1885, when Gaetano Donadio, in spite of limited means, took his first steps in the production and trade of cameos and corals,taking part in numerous trade fairs, so that one of the most ancient Neapolitan traditions:- the manufacture of cameos and corals-, became well known and world wide appreciated.
Donadio Corals and Cameos now has its production, exposition and sale location in a classic, late 19th century Vesuvian building at the Highway A3 exit, which connects Naples to the ancient cities of Pompeii and Ercolano, popular attractions for tourists visiting Southern Italy.
Its location makes the Donadio Coral Palace easily accessible even by tour buses that can conveniently stop in a large parking area in front of the facility.
