THE DECLARATION OF THE ROYAL PALACE IN CASERTA AND THE TABLES OF THE CAROLINIAN AQUEDUCT Piero Barlozzini The “Declaration of the drawings of the Royal Palace in Caserta addressed to their sacred royal majesties…” should be considered as an important chapter in the creative work of the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. An editorial effort which, without a shadow of a doubt, can be deemed one of the most remarkable ever written. Apart from the fact that the project itself is unique and Vanvitelli’s draughtsmanship and expertise in arranging the drawings is incomparable, the book was carefully conceived, developed and assembled, and every minute detail taken into consideration. The best typographical materials available on the market were chosen, as were the most talented chisellers: these are the characteristics that today make it “an artistically and historically important book”, a precious object, one which every collector of ancient books would love to have in his list of publications.

Abstract

THE DECLARATION OF THE ROYAL PALACE IN CASERTA AND THE TABLES OF THE CAROLINIAN AQUEDUCT Piero Barlozzini The “Declaration of the drawings of the Royal Palace in Caserta addressed to their sacred royal majesties…” should be considered as an important chapter in the creative work of the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. An editorial effort which, without a shadow of a doubt, can be deemed one of the most remarkable ever written. Apart from the fact that the project itself is unique and Vanvitelli’s draughtsmanship and expertise in arranging the drawings is incomparable, the book was carefully conceived, developed and assembled, and every minute detail taken into consideration. The best typographical materials available on the market were chosen, as were the most talented chisellers: these are the characteristics that today make it “an artistically and historically important book”, a precious object, one which every collector of ancient books would love to have in his list of publications.
