The UNESCO series: Reggia di Caserta

Hindered by it's location, few miles away from the bay of Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Ischia and very close the Vesuvius, the mighty Royal Palace of Caserta is pretty often neglected by tourists, despite it's undeniable value. Not only the Palace is surrounded by a complex of natural beauties, including the marvellous aqueduct built by architect Vanvitelli, but also is the largest royal palace in the world by volume (expressed in cubic meters).

Where to find the “Liberty” style.

The period spanning from 1880 and 1914 was a special time for Europe: industry was flourishing, wealth started growing massively and a new social class arose: the Bourgeoisie, mostly composed by new entrepreneurs who started competing with the old aristocracy by building nice residences and Palazzi and by calling the services of artists who were experimenting new methods, tools and artistic features. The aim was to show off their wealth by deplying a massive display of beauty in all its forms.

Travelling is like finding precious stones

When thinking about travelling, each place has a value. Be it big or be it small, it's just up to our perception of it and how much it impacted on out lives. Therefore I decided to pair precious stones to each continent, based on my personal perception of them. It's not a scoring of possible travel destinations but the impressions I got after exploring quite a big portion of this planet.
