From the Royal Palaces of Italy

Treasures and symbols of Savoy regality
To celebrate the 10th anniversary since its inauguration, La Venaria Reale organizes a great exhibition in continuity with the one about the Royal Palace of Venaria and the history of the Savoy dynasty that marked the official opening of the estate.

One hundred and thirty works from Royal Palaces across Italy when the House of Savoy rose to the throne illustrate the way they designed and defined Italian regality, after the end of the Risorgimento. Prestigious loans of works and documents from the Quirinale in Rome, Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Royal Palace of Naples, the Reggia of Caserta - to mention but a few - will narrate the story of Italian Royal Palaces at a time when they made up a comprehensive network of Residences for the Crown at national level.

The invaluable pieces on display include the throne of the Kings of Italy from Palazzo del Quirinale, the cabinet for the crown of Italy from Palazzo Pitti, the crib of the Prince of Naples from the Reggia di Caserta, and the Genius of monarchy painted in 1880 by the great Brazilian painter Pedro Amerigo as a tribute to Umberto I, today at the Royal Palace of Turin.

The exhibition was designed and produced by Consorzio La Venaria Reale
in collaboration with

the Senate of the Italian Republic

and with

Gallerie degli Uffizi, the Royal Museums of Turin, the Stupinigi Hunting Lodge, the Royal Palace of Genoa, the Museums of Campania, the Museums of Piedmont, the Reggia di Caserta, and the Autonomous Region of Valle d'Aosta.

Under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic

Curated by Silvia Ghisotti and Andrea Merlotti
