The headquarters, archive and study of the Paul Thorel Foundation are located in two nineteenth-century buildings in Naples, in the Chiaia district. The headquarters are in Via Fiorelli 5, in the house once inhabited by the artist, and overlooks the Gulf of Naples, while the archive and the studio are in the same block, in Via Imbriani 48, in the old Palazzo in Parco Bivona. These spaces had been renovated by Thorel since 1994, when he decided to settle definitively in Naples, and today they are used as guesthouse, production laboratory and works archive. Owned by the Neapolitan branch of the artist’s family for several generations, the addresses of Via Fiorelli and Via Imbriani were conceived by Thorel as an articulated structure, divided between dwelling and a production centre with studio and storeroom, and equipped with advanced technology, thus able to guarantee absolute independence during the design and realisation of works of art. The Foundation has kept this architecture intact, making it available to contemporary creativity.
