Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

According to Thiele I, p. 88 and 97, this is the then relatively recently built royal summer residence, Reggia di Portici from 1750 in the town of Portici just outside Naples at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. One of the wings of the palace contained the royal collection of antiques found at Herculaneum and Pompeii.
