Royal Residence
Palazzo Carignano, one of the most original baroque buildings, is characterised by the curved terracotta façade and the atrium with the double staircases.
Commissioned in 1678 by Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia Carignano to Guarino Guarini, the latter drew his inspiration from Bernini’s drawings for the Louvre. In the 19th century a second block was added to house the Italian Parliament, with a new frontage facing the current Piazza Carlo Alberto.
Palazzo Carignano is therefore a symbolic place of the history of the Savoy dynasty and of the Italian “Risorgimento”: Carlo Alberto and Vittorio Emanuele II were both born here, and it was the seat of the Subalpine Parliament and of the first Italian Parliament.
Since 1938, the first floor has housed the National Museum of the Risorgimento and the visit of the rooms of the Appartamenti dei Principi (Princes’ Apartments) is possibile since 2011.
