The story of Raimondo di Sangro, Prince of Sansevero is one of the main features of Kaleidos, created by Stefano Gargiulo – Kaos Produzioni, the permanent multimedia exhibition at the Museum of the Banco di Napoli, .
In 1744, as Naples slowly began to grow into to its role as a capital city, the Prince of Sansevero emerged as one of the most surprising minds of the 17th century .
