Caserta. Campania. Italy. View of the Fountain of Venus and Adonis. This fountain group of sculptures represents the kneeling goddess asking her lover to take care during the hunt as she fears for his safety, as the jealous god Mars has taken on the appearance of a wild boar with the aim of killing him. Cherubs and nymphs surround the figures standing on the travertine reef. The 18th century Royal Palace or Reggia di Caserta is Italy’s most magnificent Palace and its immense park is one of the most dazzling and grandiose in Europe. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
