The Aqueduct of Vanvitelli or Caroline Aqueduct built (1753-1762) to supply the Royal Palace of Caserta and the San Leucio complex in the Campania region of southern Italy. Engraved after Carl Ludwig Hackert (1740-96), who travelled to Rome with his brother, the painter Philipp Hackert and was encouraged by him to take up painting. This print, like many of Philipp's was published by their younger brother Georg Hackert (1755-1805), who joined Philipp and Carl in Italy in 1776.
