Chinese Palace – The whims of King Ferdinand of Bourbon

0
Immersed in the Real Parco della Favorita, the Palazzina Cinese was built to satisfy the wishes of King Ferdinand of Bourbon, who loved to follow all fashions and not renounce the most eccentric comforts. In fact, the building was designed to satisfy all his whims. A few examples? The sovereign was annoyed by the bustle of servants between one meal and the next, so he had a "mechanical table" designed, a large table with a hoist connected to the lower floor, which, thanks to a system of bells and ropes, allowed the dishes to appear and disappear. And what about the windows? The king didn't like having unwanted people around, so "spy" windows were made, so he could know in time who was coming to him.
