“Luigi Vanvitelli the genius, the eclectic”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This monument represents the commonality of Caserta. In fact, the willingness of the young King Charles of Bourbon, son of Elisabeth Farnese, is supported by this genius who in addition to engineer skills, architectural, artistic, proves to be an eclectic, lived in an age appropriate opulence of a young and modern Realm but especially well administered according to the dictates of an enlightened Monarchy by reasons of the modern economy of Antonio Genovesi and Gaetano Filangieri. The Taming the waters to the needs of the population, industry and art make this a rich Nation that lives an industrial revolution with paper mills Beaumont in Sora, with the Royal silks in San Leucio, Pietrarsa railway. That extraordinary Cenacle of minds must have been. But Louis Van Wittel combines these qualities in the work of architecture that still praising the originality of these people and it shows in the posture that takes in the statue where denotes the Royal Palace but surrounds both the population in one embrace.
