Ospedale Israelitico Carlo Adolfo de Rothschild, Naples

The fourth Rothschild brother, Carl (1788-1855), established the fifth Rothschild House in Naples in 1821 when he travelled to the city to negotiate a loan to the Government of Ferdinand II. Carl took up residence in Italy with his wife Adelheid and their five children.  For the rest of his life he divided his time between his native Frankfurt and Naples. The family supported a number of institutions in both cities, including the Jewish Hospital in Naples, named after Carl's son Adolphe Carl (1823-1900).
