The ancient seat, with the historic building erected in the seventeenth century, preserves a vast historical and artistic heritage and a rich picture gallery with paintings from different schools and eras, including works by Massimo Stanzione, Jusepe de Ribera, Luca Giordano, Andrea Vaccaro, and a considerable amount of paintings and sketches by Francesco De Mura, the artist's gift to the Institute. For several years the collection has been enriched with important works on the theme of Mercy performed by great contemporary artists. On the second floor of the building the Historical Archive and the Library are housed, in which documents are conserved starting from the XIV century, over several private Funds, including that of d'Aquino di Caramanico, with the precious parchment of the proclamation as Doctor of Church of St. Thomas Aquinas.
