  • With great sagacity and foresight Ferdinand IV of Bourbon took this factory which was placed at the forefront of those times and was a testament to clever mix between capital and labour; where the work was taking due consideration to ensuring dignity unusual for that time workers.

  • Gateway to retrace what was the Kingdom of Naples with the Bourbons very nice spring summer evenings when thanks to pozsizione can enjoy a few degrees less than in the city centre

  • Silk factory founded as a colony in 1789 by Ferdinando of Bourbon in San Leucio, around of the Palace of Caserta. The factory incorporates, in addition to all of the most modern machines for working the silk, even housing for workers, equipped with every comfort, including running water (then a luxury). In the Museum, well maintained, you can see how it was processed silk; there is a part of the building dedicated to the Royal apartments: a gem: the Queen's bath pool entirely of marble, 7 metres long!

  • San Leucio is a concrete example of how Bourbons were building new towns to experiment with industrial plants. The site was purchased by Charles Bourbon in 1750, but it was his son Ferdinand wanted to have here a great silk factory, whose products became famous and popular throughout the Kingdom for the high quality. King Ferdinand IV transformed what was a hunting reserve in a silk industry. His specific interest was to build a cutting-edge production facility that could become a tool for growth in the South. Ferdinand IV formed the San Leucio colony, which is an autonomous entity, with a Constitution that made the site one of the most advanced social experiments of Italy. The policy for reform of the code of laws is visibileanche urban architettonicoe in appearance of the village, monarchical absolutism but not inspired by principles of equality. The city is organized in fact by the silk square to downtown and the eighteenth-century portal, which gives access to the Palace-textile mill workers ' houses districts. Were the village and especially artisans and masters who still weave silk. Location to visit.

  • A jewel of history and culture. A guided visit. The story of this mansion, now more than ever, is a beautiful example of how history can still teach us something

  • Beautiful landscaping. .. property for renovation especially the route of the fountains. What a pity!

  • a place to visit not only for the wool mill and the story that brings, but also just for the wonderful view offered on Cardoso (and, on the clearest days, even beyond ....)
