Palazzo Carignano, atrio ellittico
Torino

Storico palazzo barocco progettato da Guarino Guarini (1624-1683). Fu costruito fra il 1679 e il 1684 come residenza per il ramo cadetto di casa Savoia. Nel 1848 il salone da ballo a pianta ellittica divenne la sede del parlamento Subalpino. Nel 1864 il palazzo fu ampliato e venne costruita una facciata secondaria.

More About Torino

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.
