The history of Palazzo Mondo

Il Palazzo Mondo, of the second half of the sec. XVIII, is an example of stylistic transition
between the rococo taste and the neoclassical taste of archaeological inspiration. The apartment on the first floor, fragmentarily preserved, is full of suggestions.

You can visit one Rococo living room frescoed on the walls and on the vault, the dining room, a room dedicated to vanvitelliani projects of the Royal Palace of Caserta, a study painted in yellow and decorated with Etruscan borders, a bedroom with walls painted in Pompeian red and old-fashioned edges, a prayer room.

On the frescoed vault of the rococo drawing room, one can admire the architectural perspectives painted by the Magri brothers, painters set designers of the Bibiena school, and in the corners recognize the allegorical figures painted by painter Domenico Mondo (Capodrise 1723 - Naples 1806), depicting the Cardinal Virtues (Faith, Hope, Charity) and the Theological Virtues (Fortress, Prudence, Justice, Temperance).

The painter Domenico Mondo, trained in Naples at the workshop of the famous Francesco Solimena, lived in Capodrise until 1789, when he was appointed, together with the neoclassical painter Wilhelm Tischbein, director ofRoyal Academy of Design in Naples.

A single color and a nostalgic atmosphere delineat the physiognomy of the courtyard garden, closed between high tufa walls and rustic rooms on the ground floor.
