Visiting Palazzo Madama means taking a journey through time. From Roman gate to fortress in the Middle Ages, from ducal residence to Senate of the Kingdom of Italy. Since 1934, it hosts the civic museum of the city of Turin with over 70,000 works.
Architecture over time
The architecture of Palazzo Madama presents an evident juxtaposition of different souls: Roman, medieval and Baroque. Our goal is to lead you to the discovery of this magnificent building, through photographs and video footage that allow you to enter even in places that are difficult to access to the public. An exploratory journey, led by those who normally accompany visitors to the museum, will start from the archaeological excavations to get to the medieval towers, where we will be able to enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the city of Turin. We will continue climbing one of the most fascinating staircases in Europe, designed by the architect Filippo Juvarra, and we will enter the baroque rooms, once inhabited by the duchesses of the House of Savoy Christina of France and Maria Giovanna Battista Savoia Nemours.
