Photographer's Note

Caracciolo Road is the promenade of Naples between Santa Lucia and Mergellina. The road is named after the Neapolitan admiral Francesco Caracciolo (1752-1799) who entered the Royal Bourbon Fleet and reached the highest degree.
From Caracciolo road can be admired the splendid blue of the gulf of Naples with the castel of the ovo, the Vesuvio, the peninsula sorrentina and the islands.
Mergellina has been celebrated for centuries by poets, painters and musicians as one of the most beautiful places in Naples.
Behind Caracciolo Road there is the Villa Comunale (Municipal Villa), a set of public gardens which extends for more than a kilometre between Piazza della Vittoria e Piazza Repubblica (Republic Square, in the middle of Caracciolo promenade). It was built between 1778 and 1780 by the King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, who wanted to create on the promenade a meeting point for the enjoyment of Neapolitan aristocracy and called them the Royal Villa. The first set was opened in 1781 and was afterwards enlarged several times.
