About Course

History and teachings
This outstanding complex of building, radiates out into the surrounding countryside from the Royal Palace in the ‘Command Area’ of Turin to include many country residences and hunting lodges developed for administrative and recreational purposes in and around Turin by the dukes of Savoy from 1562.

Cross-cultural dimensions
The Residences of the Royal House of Savoy is an outstanding example of European monumental architecture and town-planning in the 17th and 18th centuries that uses style, dimensions and space to illustrate in an exceptional way the prevailing doctrine of absolute monarchy in material terms.

Besides, the monumental architecture and town-planning of the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy is a testimony to the exuberant genius of Baroque and Late Baroque art and architecture and reflects the interchange of human values across Europe during the ‘Baroque episode’ of the 17th and 18th centuries which led to an immense work of creation and homogenization, ornamentation and improvement.
