    Itinerary

    caserta royal palace

    The Royal Palace of Caserta was built at the instigation of King Charles of Bourbon, founder of the Bourbon dynasty of Naples. The palace was part of a project of political reorganisation which provided for the creation of a new “administrative” capital of the Kingdom. The fiefdom of Caserta, property of the Acquaviva family, was acquired by Charles of Bourbon in 1750, and the design of the new palace was entrusted to architect Luigi Vanvitelli.
    Aside from the grandiose Palace and the Royal Park, Vanvitelli also looked at solutions to guarantee the water supply needed for the emerging residence and for the built-up area that was due to be developed to the south of the royal residence.
    Construction began in 1752 and continued at a brisk pace until 1759, when Charles of Bourbon left the Kingdom of Naples for Spain to be crowned king.
    Construction work slowed down to such an extent that when Luigi Vanvitelli died in 1773, it was far from finished. In the centuries that followed, Carlo Vanvitelli, son of Luigi, and other subsequent architects saw this magnificent residence through to completion.
    The Royal Park, designed by Luigi Vanvitelli and finished by his son Carlo, was inspired by models of the grand European residences of the era. It stretches three kilometres long and covers 120 hectares, incorporating on the left the so-called Old Forest, part of a previous Renaissance garden belonging to the Acquaviva family, where the Castelluccia and the Peschiera can be found.
    The via d’acqua water course, consisting of ponds and fountains, is fed by the Carolino aqueduct and is aligned on a south-north axis. The Margaret and Dolphin fountains are followed by four fountains inspired by legend: the Fountain of Aeolus, the Fountain of Ceres, the Fountain of Venus and Adonis, and the Fountain of Diana and Actaeon. The latter was inaugurated on 7 June 1749 and is located immediately after a magnificent artificial waterfall, the heart of the entire scenographic installation.
