Palazzo Madama


Palazzo Madama it is located in Piazza Castello (last year during Winter Olympic Games called: Medals Plaza). It is the central point of Torino's history. At really beginning it was a Roman Gate, then a fortalice, a castle and when it becomes residence of Royal princess the name was turned in Madama. During Olympic games it was permanent office of C.I.O. -- Actually it's Civic Museum of Torino Ancient Art and it deserves a trip. Please click HERE for more details in the new site.

Palazzo Madama è in Piazza Castello (denominata lo scorso anno durante i Giochi Olimpici Invernali: Medals Plaza). E' un punto centrale nella storia di Torino. Nasce come Porta Romana, diventa fortezza, castello e quando diviene residenza delle madame Reali il nome venne modificato in Palazzo Madama. Durante i Giochi Olimpici è stato sede dei membri del C.I.O. -- Attualmente è il Museo di Arte Civica di Torino e merita il viaggio. QUI è possibile trovare maggiori dettagli nel suo nuovo sito.
