Umberto I Gallery is a shopping arcade in Naples, located opposite of the San Carlo Theater, built between 1887 and 1891.
It was designed by Emanuele Rocco, taking inspiration from the modern architecture of the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery in Milan.
It was named Umberto I, in reference to the King of Italy who reigned at that time.
With the form of a tall and spacious cross, it is surmounted by a glass dome supported by 16 arches of steel.
One of the four vaulted glass wings overlooks Via Toledo (also known as Via Roma), the main street in the city center, which is commercial.
