Solimena arrived in Naples around 1674, joining the workshop of first Francesco di Maria and then Giacomo del Po, and was greatly inspired by the oil painting of Giovanni Lanfranco and Mattia Preti, previously two of the most influential Italian Baroque artists in Naples. In 1675-77 he worked with his father on the fresco of Paradise in the cupola of the Chapel of the Rosary in Nocera Cathedral. It was during these early years that he joined the priesthood, and met the influential Pietro Francesco Orsini - later Cardinal and ultimately Pope Benedict XIII - who encouraged him to become a full-time painter.
