When Emmanuel-Philibert, Duke of Savoy, moved his capital to Turin in 1562.....

........... he began a vast series of building projects (continued by his successors) to demonstrate the power of the ruling house. This outstanding complex of buildings, designed and embellished by the leading architects and artists of the time, radiates out into the surrounding countryside from the Royal Palace in the 'Command Area' of Turin to include many country residences and hunting lodges.

The Committee decided to inscribe this property on the basis of criteria (i), (ii), (iv) and (v), considering that the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy in and around Turin represent a comprehensive overview of European monumental architecture in the 17th and 18th centuries, using style, dimensions, and space to illustrate in an exceptional way the prevailing doctrine of absolute monarchy in material terms.

La Reggia di Venaria Reale e' parte di un unicum composto da Reggia stessa, giardini e borgo cittadino. Tutti questi elementi sono stati e sono tuttora restaurati dopo anni di abbandono, con finanziamenti europei, e sono uno dei tasselli più importanti della corona di delizie delle regge sabaude all'interno e attorno alla città di Torino, iscritte nel 1997 nell'elenco dei siti patrimonio dell'Umanità dell'Unesco.

The Venaria Royal is a part of a "unicum" composed of the palace itself, the gardens and the town. All these elements have been and are still being restored after years of neglect, with European funding, and are one of the most important pieces of the crown of delights of the palaces of Savoy in and around the city of Turin, entered in the 1997 list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

La costruzione iniziò nel 1659 a seguito del progetto originale dell'architetto "Amedeo di Castellamonte", ben prima dell'unificazione dell'Italia, quando Torino era la capitale del ducato di Savoia. Lo scopo del sito è stato quello di realizzare il miglior posto reale per la caccia.
Il progetto fu poi modificato, anche dopo i danni di guerra, nella prima parte dall'architetto Michelangelo Garove, ma in particolare dal famoso architetto Filippo Juvarra, e da ultimo da Benedetto Alfieri.

The construction started in 1659 following original project of architect "Amedeo di Castellamonte", well before the Italy unification, when Turin was the capital of duchy of Savoy. The scope of the site was to realise the best royal place for hunting.

Next to the Venaria there will be just as charming as masterpieces, but the best known: the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Tower of Pisa, the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi and Rome's Colosseum.

"When, in 1994, we started the restoration project, I never thought of getting similar results. Do you think that we also had to print the brochures in Chinese "- allows the engineer Francis Partridge, head of the conservative Venaria, which now flies to Shanghai to talk about the recovery and revitalization of the whole of Savoy, visited by about one million tourists the 'year. Officials of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China are ready to accept and know the baroque style designed by Juvarra, large pavilions designed by Michelangelo Garove and innovative techniques used for the restoration of 240 000 cubic meters of interior walls and floors .

In "Italian Pavilion" experts report on technologies used for the redesign of large architectural excellence as the building of Venaria that, within three years, has transformed itself from ruin hostage of vandals and looters, museum center in the top five in Italy. "And so we became an export product in the field of restoration of cultural heritage" - Pernice jokes. They talk about the data. "The Palace is the only museum in Italy is able to cover 50% of operating costs with revenue from ticket and renting of spaces [/ B] - explains Alberto Vanelli, the director of the Consortium Venaria Royal - The others arrive at 25.30%. " There is talk of an annual budget of 13 million euros and a half. Five and a half coming from the ticket office, 800 000 euros from renting the rooms. " In Shanghai, will discuss not only the success of the Palace. But the redevelopment of existing urban fabric, "Better City, Better Life." Venaria is an example. "Today is a pedestrian street Mensa, have sprouted dozens of new businesses, historic buildings restored, the square is no longer called the Annunciation Square Corleone - analyzes Partridge - because this is turning even the social fabric, all you will cretai 500 jobs. " And in a few months from the city center, Piazza della Repubblica, and Esedra Pagliere Court, sixty family moved from council estates to new areas of the city. In the old housing will host hotels, hostels and shops for the new Venaria.

Now on view in the Royal Palace of Venaria's Rooms of the Arts are the works of celebrated goldsmith Carl Fabergé: gold, gems, diamonds and unique examples of his famous Easter Eggs, the excellent artistic production that reached its apex between the 19th and 20th Centuries.
The exhibit is completely dedicated to the French jeweler known as Karl Gustavovič Fabergé (1846-1920), head jeweler to the Imperial Court of the Romanovs.

Three-hundred-fifty precious masterworks will be on exhibit in this Royal Turinese Palace, all from the goldsmith’s atelier in St. Petersburg. Today they belong to the Link of Times Foundation collection in Moscow, and include nine of the Imperial jeweled Eggs – realized in gold, invaluable stones and other rare materials – in addition to the surprise heart picture frame of the Egg of 1897.

moooooolto interessante il tuo lavoro, ancorché ingrato!! :)
Io aggiungerei anche Palazzo Chiablese: è vero che è un continuum con Palazzo Reale, ma tecnicamente è un edificio a sé e con una storia indipendente rispetto al suo "vicino", sia dal punto di vista dell'evoluzione architettonica che artistico-decorativa, nonché per l'uso che ne fu fatto
