The estimated budget in 2016 is divided into current expenses and investment expenses. The former concern the ordinary activities of the Museum, as expected by the management standards; the latter concern structural fundings and are addressed to middle-term and long-term programs, aimed at the progressive growth of the museum offer.
At the time of the drafting of this document, the budget for the year 2016 has not yet completed the due procedure necessary for its approval. Therefore, it is only possible to account for some aggregate items, as specified below.
On an average number of 350.000 visitors, net of premiums provided, the average proceeds resulting from the ticketing are 1,2 million euro, to which about 0,6 million euro resulting from the surcharge on the ordinary ticket on the occasion of exhibitions are to be added, as well as about 0,2 million euro resulting from premiums on additional services (royalties on the sales of bookshop, fees and photographic and reproduction rights).
A further entry results from loan fees of archeological materials for exhibitions abroad, which can determine proceeds for about 0,6 million euro in 2016. Moreover, financial resources connected with sponsoring, which have been estimated in 0,1 million euro in 2016, are to be taken into consideration.
The expenses, which amount on average to about 2,5 million euro per year, are computed net of the wages charged to Mibact and concern the costs of functioning of the Museum for heating, utilities, cleaning, ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of the building and installations.
The investment expenses for the period 2016-2020 have already been partly funded, in the financial year 2015, by the ex-Soprintendenza Speciale of Naples and Pompeii. On the contrary, further funds of about 15 million euro are attributable to the PON (Programma Operativo Nazionale) “Culture and Development”, co-financed by European funds (FESR), plus the resources allocated by CIPE funds, which amount to about 20 million euro, for the period 2016-2020.
