The history of the most ambitious Savoy residence

More than a catalogue, this is a comprehensive volume of studies on the House of Savoy. Published for the inaugural exhibition in the restored royal palace of Venaria Reale, the book describes the development of the European courts and dynasties and the thousand-year history of the House of Savoy (in particular from Victor Amadeus II to Charles Emanuel III and Victor Amadeus III), the construction of the Piedmontese “Crown of Delights”, and the stunning outcome of the restoration of Venaria Reale (one of the largest restoration sites in recent European history), today one of the most visited and admired of Italy's historic residences.
