The blue of the Mediterranean, the green of the hills behind, the soft tones of the eighteenth-century buildings and the riot of colors of the heraldic coats of arms that stand out on the upper sides: this hand-washed perspective view of Naples is a real joy for the eyes, besides being an artifact of great historical, cultural and artistic value. Our gaze ranges from the Castel dell'Ovo to the Castel Sant'Elmo, getting lost in the many details and details depicted by the master Friedrich Bernhard Werner. Certainly the all-German taste for the cities crowned by towers and tall bell towers accompanied the hand of the designer, but this does nothing but make this perspective view of rare beauty even more fascinating. To accompany the drawing, in the lower part, an immense legend of as many as 77 items which, one after the other, indicate the places of interest and the main buildings of eighteenth-century Naples - here called Neapolis, taking up the Greek root of the name.
