Video: The Villa d' Elboeuf at Portici

I just came across the following video of the remains of the Villa d'Elboeuf on YouTube. I had no idea how big and elaborate it was. It must have been spectacular in the 18th century. Its present condition is shocking, however, which is a great shame. If anyone is interested, I posted a brief history of the villa back in March 2009 after news reports of a fire.

very sad to see something that should be grand in such a state. Any idea who owns it now?
