After his educational trips, first to England, then to Italy, he had the Vesuvius in small format on the island of Stein, as a memory of his visit to Naples, as the spokeswoman for the cultural foundation.

The Regent had risen to the Vesuvius with the British diplomat and volcanologist Sir William Hamilton (1731-1803) in Italy. As a memory of the time together, the prince had the Villa Hamilton built on the island of Stein at home in Anhalt in Wörlitz.
