From King Umberto and Queen Maria Josè to Carlo Alberto, the fascinating story of the Italian Royal Family. Relics and paintings revive the beauty and charm of life at Court, but also more intimate family moments of the dynasty.
A historic exhibition about the Italian Royal Family: Casa Savoia tells the story, not a millenary story dating back over the centuries, but a story set quite close to us in time, which began with the Unification of Italy and Vittorio Emanuele II, of the famous dynasty. Since 1861, when the Kingdom of Italy came into being, there have been four kings and three queens, who are the key figures in an exhibition that celebrates and examines their lives without entering into the political debate but which has the aim of offering visitors to the exhibition a royal and real close-up view of this family, composed of ordinary men and women. In fact, outside the life of the Court and ceremonial imposed by their circumstances, ‘Italy’s First Family’ lived in a very simple way, bringing them closer to and making them loved by the Italian people.
