Welcome in Sorrento

Saltovar's Art


Silvio Salvatore Gargiulo, called Saltovar (Sorrento, 1868-1944), versatile artist, poet, wood inlayers, business man, but most of all passionate lover of his hometown. He left properties, art works, that Sorrento people, and everyone who come from all over the world attracted by the amenities of the Sorrento coast, can admire still today.
The people of Sorrento still remember of him for his writes, prose and poems, that were able to well describe the evolutions of the transition from one century to another.
In the Museum Correale Terranova, on the ground floor, dedicated to the museum founders, it is possible to admire, in the Room 2, the precious inlaid wood collection that Saltovar left in the year 1937.
