Fountain of Aeolus
Architetto: Luigi Vanvitelli
Caserta Parco Reale, Fontana di Eolo, particolare
The Fountain of Aeolus, made up of an exedra from which lead various caverns, the dwelling places of the winds, was inspired by the story of the Aeneid, in which Juno asks for Aeolus's help to take Aeneus away from Italy, but the work was never completed. The fountain is still missing the statue of Aeolus and that of Juno, who should be on a carriage pulled by peacocks.
