Portal, Castel Nuovo, Naples

One of the major sculptural monuments of Renaissance Naples is the portal to the Castel Nuovo.

Francesco Laurana’s double triumphal arch features scenes of a parade through the streets of the city.

Abandoning the stiff, unnatural poses of the Medieval era, Laurana’s sculpture looks back to classical art and motifs for inspiration.
