The State Archive of Naples is a suburban office of the Culture Ministry. It ensures the preservation, safety and promotion of the archival heritage promoting its use to students and citizens.

Founded in 1808, the State Archive of Naples from 1845 has its headquarters in the monumental complex of S.S Saverino and Sossio, one of the most significant yet ancient centers of Benedectine spirituality in South Italy.

Within its four floors and deposits worth more than 70 kilometres of documents, the Neapolitan archive represents a reference point for the research in the sector of medieval, modern and contemporary history of Italy and Europe, as well as the one of Southern Italy.

The facility supervises the peripherical State offices located in the province of Naples.
