Result of the project Back to Italy (2017)the art piece Scalone d'Onore, Reggia di Caserta features in the shot, conceived like this by Liu Bolin, a technical virtuosity by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli that is the great hall adorned with two magnificent lion sculptures. A perfect synthesis of classical rigour and Baroque scenography, the Staircase is made up of a hundred marble steps, distributed between the monumental central ramp and the lateral ramps that lead to the Upper Vestibule. The marbles create a highly suggestive chromatic harmony. The Upper Vestibule, octagonal in shape, is the fulcrum of the building. Here the space is enlivened by a swirling succession of vaults, arches, columns and pillars, which culminate in the spiral motif of the large central dome.
