A.A.A. On-site Technical Session

A.A.A. On-site Technical Session


On a first come first served basis (max 150 persons per session)

On the 19 February 1853 Ferdinand II of Bourbon signed a decree with which he commissioned the arch. Errico Alvino - an extraordinary commissar for Via Chiaia and S. Ferdinando - to design an underground viaduct that, passing under Monte Echia, joined the Royal Palace with Piazza Vittoria, near the sea and the barracks.
This decree had no social purposes; Alvino considered the realization of a military passage, in defense of the Royal Palace, for the troops stationed in the barracks of via Pace (now via Domenico Morelli), as well as a safe escape route for the same monarchs, after the risks of 1848s riots.
This session will include a guided tour to the Bourbon Tunnel and the AAA presentation in the splendid Serra di Cassano palace). Guests will jump into the past, through the steep stairs caved in the tuff rock that link the basement of the Serra di Cassano Palace to the Bourbon Tunnel, accompanied by the narration of local guides. (one-way transfer included)
