Description

Model of the Royal Palace of Madrid, made of marble reconstituted with resin.

Measurements: 16,5 x 16,5 x 7,5 cm.

The Royal Palace stands on the site of the old Alcazar of the Habsburgs, destroyed by fire in 1734. Philip V commissioned Filippo Juvara to design a new building. His death meant that the task finally fell to Juan Bautista Sachetti.

In 1738 the Italian presented a project similar to the traditional layout of Spanish palaces, with a quadrangular plan around a central courtyard and corner towers, which here are only marked on the ground plan.

The result was a magnificent palace stylistically linked to the international Baroque style in force in Europe, articulated with pilasters and columns of giant order on a first cushioned body, and topped by a balustrade that was to be completed with the stone statues of the kings of Spain, which, in the end, due to weight problems, were placed in the square and the immediate gardens.
