Impressions from the World

La Reggia di Caserta


The Royal Palace of Caserta, which is one of the most important artistic monuments of Italy, is located in Campania and it has been recognized by UNESCO as a World heritage. It was designed in 1750 by Luigi Vanvitelli, upon decision of the king of Naples Carlo VII of Borbone. It belongs to the italian baroque and it is fronted by a park, which is also a World heritage. The Royal Palace of Caserta occupies 45.000 square meters and, composed of 5 floors, it is 36 meters high. On its main facade there are 143 windows and, inside the palace there are 1200 rooms and 34 stairways. The building is made of bricks and it presents a huge central dome. Its inside part is full of decorations and art works such as stuccoes, bas-reliefs, frescoes, sculptures, inlaid floors.

The beautiful park is an integral part of the Royal Palace. It is one of the most characteristic examples of the Italian park and it consists of fountains, lawns and flower beds. Since it is really big, it is a bit hard to walk through it all, especially during a sunny day. We reserved some bicycles (you can do it inside the park) and we visited it appreciating all its majesty, but also having fun.


La Reggia di Caserta, uno dei monumenti artistici italiani più importanti, si trova in Campania ed è stata riconosciuta Patrimonio mondiale dall’UNESCO. È stata progettata nel 1750 da Luigi Vanvitelli, su decisione del re di Napoli Carlo VII di Borbone. Appartiene al barocco italiano ed è fronteggiata da un splendido parco, anch’esso riconosciuto Patrimonio mondiale. La Reggia di Caserta occupa 45.000 metri quadri e, composta da 5 piani, è alta circa 36 m. Sulla facciata principale ci sono 143 finestre e, all’interno del palazzo sono presenti 1200 stanze e 34 scalinate. L’edificio è fabbricato in mattoni e presenta un’ampia cupola centrale. Il suo interno è ricco di decorazioni e opere d’arte quali stucchi, bassorilievi, affreschi, sculture, pavimenti a intarsio.

Parte integrante della Reggia è il bellissimo parco. È uno degli esempi più caratteristici del parco all’italiana ed è costituito da fontane, prati ed aiuole. Essendo molto vasto, è abbastanza faticoso percorrerlo tutto a piedi, soprattutto nelle giornate di sole. Noi abbiamo affittato delle biciclette (c’è la possibilità di farlo proprio all’interno del parco) e lo abbiamo visitato apprezzandolo in tutta la sua maestosità, ma anche divertendoci.
