    The long tradition of Capodimonte porcelain was born over the Bourbon dynasty, precisely in 1743, when king Carlo Bourbon and his wife Amalia di Sassonia established a porcelain production center in their royal residence of Capodimonte. They wanted to equal the german porcelain production of the Meissen factory.

The royal family ordered to build the Real Fabbrica of Capodimonte, that became the most important porcelain factory in Europe, even better than the one from Germany. In effect, thanks to an innovative and unique technique, they created a "sottovetro" effect.
