The Umberto I gallery is a monumental one commercial gallery built between the 1887 and the 1890 by the will of King Umberto I, two years after the approval of the Law for the Rehabilitation of the city of Naples. The Gallery was the historical seat of the Masonic Grand Orient lodge of Italy, as represented by the Star of David which dominates the dome drum.
In the splendid gallery, accessible through four entrances, the main one overlooking the theater of San Carlo, they have worked for more than 50 years sciuscià, the shoeshine of the city, of which only one perpetuates the tradition.
