Collezione Reggia di Caserta
The Grand Staircase of Honour

The Royal Palace of Caserta, with its immense park and aqueducts, was the royal residence of the Bourbon dynasty of the Two Sicilies. It is the largest royal palace in the world and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

The Grand Staircase of Honour, with its rich marbles and enormous statues, represents a perfect synthesis of classicism and baroque scenographic architecture of the 18th century. Designed by Luigi Vanvitelli, it served as the model for all great staircases around the world. The staircase, which follows the line of Vanvitelli’s telescope, is illuminated by twenty-four windows and ends with a fake dome that is a masterpiece of fantasy and technique. Once upon a time, the loggia housed a small, invisible orchestra that played when the king ascended the staircase.

The staircase is made up of a total of one hundred and sixteen steps in white Carrara marble. From the central staircase, two parallel lateral staircases depart, ending in a structure of arches and columns that resembles a temple. The three statues at the end of the staircase represent: Merit, Royal Majesty, and Truth, while the two large marble lions on either side of the central ramp represent “The strength of reason and arms” that ensure the sovereign’s possession of his realms.
