The design of Palazzo San Teodoro has been influenced also by the ruins discovered in Pompei and Ercolano after the eruption of volcano Vesuvio, being Guglielmo Bechi an archeologist too.
The style discovered in Pompei and Ercolano would go perfectly with the neoclassical one, which characterized the architecture and decors of the noble palace during the majority of the XIX century.
The result is a building of great originality and beauty: the creativity of Gugliemo Bechi and other masters of art (Salvatore Giusti and Gennaro Maldarelli for paintings; Gennaro Aveta e Andrea De Crescenzo for stuccos) reached the peak with the design of the main apartment. Six hundred square meters of halls and living rooms finely decorated with paintings and stuccos, influenced by Pompei and Ercolano style.
The majority of the floorings are made with cotto tile and hand painted, while in other halls, as the dance hall, there are wooden upholsteries. The original furnitures reveal the epoch trend and the gallery overlooks on the sea and the green area of Real Villa.
Thus, there is the will to find and show the authenticity and beauty everywhere.
