Palazzo Madama describes the two thousand year history of Turin because it includes, in one building, the Roman towers of Porta Pretoria, the 15th century Castle of Ludovico d'Acaja and the facade added in 1721 by Filippo Juvarra. When it lost its defensive function, it became the elegant palace of the “Mesdames Royales”, firstly Christine of France and then Marie Jeanne Baptiste of Savoy-Nemours, wife of Carlo Emanuele II. In the 19th century, court life gave way to politics: Carlo Alberto installed the first Royal Senate here, where the birth of the Kingdom of Italy was proclaimed. Since 1934 it has been home to the Civic Museum for Antique Art. Technical details: in the centre of Piazza Castello, the Palace can hold events for up to 200 people in the Sala del Senato and for 80 people in the Camera delle Guardie. There is also the Corte Medievale for 100 people at cocktails.
