Among the mysterious places of Naples, immersed in ancient legends and amazing secrets, is the Sansevero Chapel, located in the old center of the city, it is inextricably linked with the figure of the owner, the famous Raimondo di Sangro, Prince Sansevero, who has always been considered to be something average between a mad scientist and a magician .
But recent studies say that the prince was a profound connoisseur of alchemical secrets, a man of great culture and stood at the very top of the powerful Neapolitan Freemasonry until he was excommunicated.

Prince Sansevero
However, Pope Benedict XIV soon abolished this excommunication.
It seems that dad discovered that all the charges against the prince were only "the product of the envy and slander of his personal enemies." Other rumors say, and this is more likely to be true, the pardon was the result of Vatican political maneuvers.
But where is she really, is this truth? In the first or second assumption?
In the basement of the Chapel there are two skeletons with a circulatory cardio system in an amazing state of preservation, and, according to rumors, they were created by the prince himself, he introduced a secret, mysterious, alchemical mixture, where iron in the veins was based on his two servants, still alive, and petrified they are thus forever and everlasting.
And the viewer is chilling, thinking that the terrible rumors about the magical beginning of this project, is the true truth ...
According to legend, Raimondo di Sangro, Prince Sansevero, who "at one time was a warlock, whose name terrified the people" was looking for volunteers, or the bodies of recently dead people in order to "exercise their art over them."
Some recent studies by Neapolitan doctors consider these two skeletons, at least partially (!), As simple anatomical machines, as artifacts as wonderful as possible.
But I will not write about it, I want to show the magnificent sculpture, the chapel itself, and not what is stored in the basement)). However, in the basement these are the very anatomical machines with horror:

And now about the famous "Covered Christ" by Giuseppe Sanmartino.
The works of the sculptor are present in many Neapolitan churches, these are works of good and pure exalted spirit, and they speak of Sanmartino’s superb mastery, but only once does he reach the superhuman level of ability and absolute perfection: in the veiled Christ of his own technical superman work that allows us to clearly see features of our Lord under a veil of marble.
So, what is striking - the marble "shroud" has a thickness of only 2-3 mm!

Christ. Giuseppe Sanmartino, 1753
(There is an opinion that this is not marble at all, but the so-called Stack ("Stucco (Italian. Stucco, German stuck) - artificial marble", an analogue of gypsum with marble chips, with glue, etc. But this is only an opinion or rather, a legend warmed up by the text of a prince that has survived to our times.
In it, again, the mysterious formula: “Kalkin viva viva 10 pounds, water barill 4, coal ash. Cover the oven with coals and coals lit with coals with the strongest bellows. Goes down the model, which will be in a brick bathroom, then covered with a very thin curtain of special fabric soaked with water and mortar.It will be a curtain of marble that will become natural, and the model will glow like a model. ”
This document unequivocally and dramatically increases the fame of the prince and understates the talent of the artist. But we do not agree, right?
In the chapel there are two more sculptures with the thinnest covers in the chapel, they show an incredible mastery of tools and an absolute understanding of marble by the artists: “Modesty” by Corradini and “Disappointment” by Francesco Carolo, these sculptors also collaborated with the prince.
But - attention - Corradini came to Naples at a later age, and he already made statues endowed with very thin veils, like Pudicia, kept in the Louvre.
Recently, having studied a document in the Historical Archives of Banco di Napoli, scientists have decided that the veil of the “Covered Christ” refers exclusively to the sculptural genius Sanmartino.
It only seems that the sculptor's chisel is completely incapable of performing many details, recreating the integuments and the net. Nevertheless, the statues stand in the Cappella Sansevero in Naples and exist as real evidence of the impossible.
