Palazzo Carignano, elliptic atrium
Turin

Baroque historical building by Guarino Guarini (1624-1683). It was built between 1679 and 1684 for the cadet branch of Savoia family. In 1848 the elliptical dance hall was changed in room for the House of Deputies (Subalpine Parliament). In 1864 the whole building were enlarged and a secondary façade was built.

More About Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
