The show

The Royal Apartment, thanks to an imaginative scenography conceived by the artist Hubert Le Gall, will be the exceptional stage on which the Teatro di San Carlo and the Capodimonte porcelains will be staged.

The exhibition will tell the story of Naples, capital of the Kingdom during the eighteenth century and beyond, from the years of Charles of Bourbon to those of Ferdinand II, like a fairy tale, with the succession of scenes of everyday life characterized by extreme aesthetic refinement and existential joy. but which have as their background the passage of power, changes in history, fashions and aesthetic tastes.

Each room will have a theme: Egyptomania, chinoiserie, sacred music, politics and the succession of dynasties, the Grand Tour, the art of sewing, the irony of 18th century wigs and many others. All these themes will be told through an exhibition of over 500 porcelains from the Royal Factories of Capodimonte and Naples, more than 100 costumes from the Teatro di San Carlo selected by Giusi Giustino, Head of the Theater's tailoring, musical instruments, paintings, objects of art and furniture and taxidermized animals today preserved at the Zoological Museum of Naples .

Music will be a real guide thanks to the use of dynamic headphones that will give the visitor the opportunity to listen to the songs selected for each room, accompanying him on a multisensory journey inside the Royal Palace that will turn into a real show theatrical.

Curated by Sylvain Bellenger, the exhibition is promoted by the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, in collaboration with the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, with the production and organization of the Electa publishing house.
