The latest episode of Designing Worlds – as we visit the beautiful island of Rocca Sorrentina, an imagining of a late eighteenth century island in the Bay of Naples – is now on the web.

We are joined by two of the people behind Rocca Sorrentina (or Principal Magistrates as they are called) Aldo Stern and Sere Timeless. They take us on a journey of discovery as we learn about the rich culture that flourished in the Kingdom of Naples (much visited on the Grand Tour), and the history that lay behind it, reaching back to the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.
