The show

The Royal Apartment, thanks to an imaginative setting designed by the artist Hubert Le Gall, will be the exceptional stage on which the Teatro di San Carlo and the Capodimonte porcelain 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 a succession of scenes of everyday life characterized by extreme aesthetic refinement and existential joy but which have as their background the passage of power, the changes in history, fashions and aesthetic tastes.

Each room will have a theme: egyptomania, chinoiserie, sacred music, politics and succession of dynasties, the Grand Tour, the art of sewing, the irony of '700 wigs and many others. All these themes will be told through an exhibition of more than 500 porcelain from the Royal Factories of Capodimonte and Naples, more than 100 costumes of the Teatro di San Carlo selected by Giusi Giustino, Head of Theater tailoring, musical instruments, paintings, objects of art and furnishings and taxidermy animals now preserved in the Zoological Museum of Naples.

The music will be a real guide thanks to the use of dynamic headphones that will give the visitor the opportunity to listen to the selected pieces for each room, accompanying him on a multi-sensory journey inside the Royal Palace that will turn into a real show theatrical.

Curated by Sylvain Bellenger, the exhibition is promoted by the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte, in collaboration with the Teatro di San Carlo di Napoli, with the production and organization of Electa.
