In the agricultural expanses of the province of Caserta, a few kilometers from the Royal Palace of Caserta, stands the Royal Palace of Carditello, the hunting estate of King Ferdinand of Bourbon.
Aroma, a company specializing in the design and production of coffee machines, becomes a sponsor of the Foundation, which manages and supervises the renovation and events taking place at the Royal Palace of Carditello (to learn more about the Site and the events, click here).
The Caffè Carditello project was born in 2020, not just a coffee but a redemption and revenge project. In fact, the Royal Palace, subtracted from abandonment and decay, in recent years rediscovers its ancient architectural splendors, and the activities inside it have been renewed: from the breeding of the Persano horse, originally from the Site, to the most varied social activities, from concerts to is open for balloon flights.
The proceeds from the sale of Caffè Carditello will help finance the renovations and the countless activities of the Site.
The palace of Carditello - commissioned by Ferdinand IV of Bourbon and built around 1787 by Francesco Collecini, collaborator of Luigi Vanvitelli - was born as a Royal Farm with the breeding of Persano horses and the first production of buffalo mozzarella.
Today, after resisting the wounds of crime and being recovered by the state, Carditello is an example of redemption and rebirth, open to families, children and refugees also thanks to a Sprar agreement.
