Old films

Watch the early videos by Istituto Luce about the events and events that took place in the Royal Palace of Caserta from the Fascist era onwards.

Istituto Luce is the oldest public institution in the world created to create educational films. Born in 1924 during the fascist period, it was also a powerful means of propaganda for the dictatorship. It was created to educate the illiterate Italian population through images, and they were broadcast to the cinema before each film. Since the end of the Second World War he has continued to produce documentaries and films, and his archive is an extraordinary resource for discovering the Italian history of the twentieth century.
