Carlo Vanvitelli
The details (from wikipedia)


Carlo Vanvitelli (1739–1821) was an Italian architect and engineer, who worked mainly in Naples and its surrounding area.

He was the son of architect Luigi Vanvitelli, and two of his brothers were also architects. Together with Pietro, he apprenticed under his father in the construction of the Palace of Caserta. Both worked at the decoration in Piazza Dante in Naples and at Villa Giulia. During the last years of his father's life, he resided in Caserta directing the works; when Luigi died (1773), Carlo Vanvitelli became director of the construction.

His other works include Palazzo Berio, Villa Reale, and Palazzo Doria d'Angri.


Charles and Peter had the same instruction, both worked in the yard of the Palace of Caserta and participated in the construction of Carolino Aqueduct Collecini with Francesco and Pietro Bernasconi. In 1759 they collaborated with their father at the Foro Carolino. Their last collaboration was the Collecini for the relief of the Casino di San Nicadro in Barra.
