  • An example of absolute modernity which unfortunately is no longer current. Same job women earned as a man, the school was already compulsory up to 15 years and workers ' clothes were made of silk!

  • SUBLIME!!!
  • A jewel of industrial archaeology which is absolutely worth visiting. To understand especially how true the consideration for which you have only lost the South ddice of the unification of Italy. Here in 700 King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon created a factory where they produced thirst for very valuable bills and guaranteed home education and wages to the workers. Paying a single euro more than the ticket guides, very prepared, will lead you along the path between the Museum where there are beautiful and interesting working tools (by twisting machine invented by Leonardo da vinci to chassis) and the Royal apartments. Beautiful view on the plain where the beautiful Royal Palace of Caserta.

  • 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.

  • Too bad that few know: is a very impressive place with a wonderful view over the Gulf of Naples and Vesuvius. Michele (as I recall the name), at the box office, very kind person; very professional and engaging guide. UNESCO and few people know: has a special story.
