Too much!

This is the good legacy of 3000 years of history when a lot of cities big and little was been capital for a while until the process of unification in 1861. For example Ravenna and Aquileja that was very important in roman age now are little city with very important remains. Another example: the 4 Maritim Republics: Venice Genoa Pisa and Amalfi; they was been economic capitals in Mediterranean Area!

I have been reading about the House Of Savoy. That helps me understand the beauty of Turin with its many palaces.

Nice start TimothyR. But I think it's important to remember the history and legacy that Marquisate of Saluzzo left from the Middle Age until the end of Rinascimento in a wide area of Piedmont. They left a lot of castles in that area.

Thank you. I am now reading about that too. I looked at some photos of Saluzzo - very beautiful town.

The church of S. Pelagia was built in 1769-72, designed by Filippo Nicolis di Robilant for the Augustinian nuns.
The style of the building is between Baroque and Neoclassical, with a central plan.

Yes it is.

About the legacy of the marquisate you should see how are beautiful Castle of Manta and Castle of Tapparelli from Lagnasco and some others.

These examples and some other examples of middle age architectures and arts situated near Aoste (Castle of Fenis, Castle of Issogne..) was concentrated into the Borgo Medioevale of Turin that was built for an expo (it could be temporary like Eiffel Tower in Paris or Atomium in Bruxelles) at the end of XIX century.

Sorry for my english!

Thanks for the information. I like the contrast between the simple neoclassical exterior and the rich Baroque interior.

I am studying about this now. It is all so beautiful. It is interesting to read that the history of the area is connected to the southeastern part of France. I think Avignon is rather close?

I found photos of the Castles you mention in the Aosta Valley. Magnificent!

Your English is fine.

Avignon is 465km far by car from turin. About 4h-5h

If you have read about the history of House of Savoy you know that some parts of France (Chambery and Nice until 1859) and some parts of Swisse (Geneve) was part of the reign of this house for a long time

@Normy: Please edit your post, I think it's important to say Carlo of Castellamonte and Filippo Juvarra were architects of the royal house and not members of the Savoy
