  Italian architect and sculptor. He was trained by Niccol Salvi and worked with him on lengthening the faade of Gian Lorenzo Bernini s Palazzo Chigi in Rome.
  Despite its Spanish allegiance and its taste for heavy ornament Naples continued to be influenced by Rome in the mid-18th century and it was Luigi Vanvitelli who gave the town its feeling of vast architectural space. His enormous Royal Palace at Caserta (near Naples) was one of the last triumphs of the Italian Baroque.
