Brief description

In 1828 Carl Gustav Carus accompanied the painter and doctor, Prince Friedrich August of Saxony on a journey to Italy. Nowadays, with the help of Carl Gustav Carus’s diary, one can still enjoy Carus’s excitement upon arrival in Nepal on May 4th: “An old, richly dressed, German chamberlain shows everyone to their already prepared room. I was awaiting my “go!” with a lot of excitement! Finally he guides me up to my room. Upon entering my room, there lies the Vesuvius, the sea, a castle and the sight of blue spreading into the distance.” He was accommodated in Casino Reale on the Via Chiatamone with a view of the Castel dell’Ovo. One can almost sense the longing for freedom, looking out of the coolness of the shade riddled room, over the garnished balcony, symbolized by the dock and the sea.
