The Arts Institute found temporary accommodation in a wing of the Palazzo degli Studio which subsequently became an Archaeological Museum. In 1863, a new location was found for the Institute as part of the renovation of the Fosse del Grano (the wheat stores). The building of Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli represents one of the most significant projects of Alvino's career. The construction which began in 1864, was completed after Alvino's death by his student Giuseppe Pisanti, who signed the monumental stairway in 1880.
