Piazza Amedeo and the Aselmeyer Castle

History

Imagining to have left from Via Chiaia, to have passed through Piazza dei Martiri and taking Via dei Mille, this route rich in churches, museums, underground galleries, historic buildings and big names for luxury shopping, ends at Piazza Amedeo and the incredible and surprising view of a glimpse of Corso Vittorio Emanuele with il Castello Aselmeyer. The building was finally built in 1902 by the Anglo-Neapolitan architect Lamont Young, in addition to making the view from Piazza Amedeo enchanting, is one of the most successful examples of neo-medieval architecture in the city; it presents numerous autobiographical elements of the architect, as well as obvious “Elizabethan” and “Tudor” elements.

The project is a combination of elements of English Gothic architecture, such as arches or ogival and has towers protruding, so as to give the castle a medieval imprint. Also worthy of note are the materials used to build the castle, in fact, the facade, consisting of two side towers, is covered entirely by Vesuvian stone ashlars, while the interior (ceilings, floors, walls, stairs, doors) are all in wood
