Vandals defaced the façade of the Royal Palace of Caserta at night. Sangiuliano: “Those responsible will pay for the restorations out of their own pockets”

Acts of vandalism against the Royal Palace of Caserta: during the night, someone daubed paint on the walls of the facade of the Royal Palace designed by Luigi Vanvitelli and the historic royal residence of Caserta, today a UNESCO protected property together with the Park, the Vanvitelli Aqueduct and the San Leucio complex. This was reported by the Minister of Culture, Gennaro Sangiuliano, who also announced investigations by the police and that those responsible will pay for the restorations out of their own pockets.

“Last night a vile act of vandalism hit the Royal Palace of Caserta”, said Sangiuliano, “someone daubed the walls of the facade of the Royal Palace with paint. What happened is unacceptable: this unspeakable gesture hit an icon of the our beauty and a site that UNESCO has recognized as a World Heritage Site. I hope”, continued the minister, “that the police will be able to identify those responsible as soon as possible and that they will be sanctioned with absolute firmness law that I strongly desired, furthermore, the vandals will have to pay for the restoration work of the work out of their own pocket“.

The reference is to the law approved in recent weeks and which targets “those who are responsible for acts of vandalism against art and national monuments, the heritage of our identity and humanity”. They will have to pay for the restoration themselves. “It’s about administrative sanctions that can be immediately imposed by the prefect of the place where the crime was committed, based on the complaints of public officials”, the Minister of Culture had already commented then.
