MALVITO, Tommaso
(active 1476-1508)

Cappella del Succorpo (Cappella Carafa)

Duomo della Vergine Assunta, Naples

In 1497 Malvito was commissioned by Cardinal Oliviero Carafa to design the Cappella del Succorpo in the Cathedral of Naples. This chapel was the crypt of the cathedral. The chapel is covered by marble and is divided into three naves by columns. In the centre, the statue representing the praying donor Carafa is attributed to Giovanni Tommaso Malvito.
