In 1750 Charles of Bourbon (1716-1788) decided to build the Royal Palace as ideal center of the new Kingdom of Naples, by that time autonomous and released from Spanish aegis. The choice of the location, where it would rise the new kingdom’s  administrative capital, fell on the plains of Terra di Lavoro, in the site dominated by the sixteenth century Acquaviva palace. The project for the majestic building, intended to compete with others European royal residences, was committed, after various events, to architect Luigi Vanvitelli (1700-1773), son of the most important landscape painter, Gasper Van Wittel, formerly active in Rome under Benedetto XIV in dome of S. Pietro restoration.
