Fifteen greatest royal estates, palaces, castles, villas and charterhouses

One of the characteristics of the history of the Savoy dynasty is the way in which its members entrusted the task of sustaining and celebrating the role and importance of their line to the royal estates and country houses built around the capital. The Royal Palace of Turin and the Regio Parco, the Vigna [vineyard] of Cardinal Maurizio, renamed Villa della Regina [the Queen’s Villa], the palace of Venaria and the Palazzina di Caccia [hunting palace] of Stupinigi, the castles of Rivoli, Moncalieri, Racconigi and Agliè are a network of buildings, parks and gardens that - aside from the date of their construction or transformation, and the personalities of those who commissioned them - glorify the routines of courtly life, which reflected the ambitions and role that the House of Savoy, the oldest European reigning dynasty, wanted to assume in the international politics of the 18th and 19th century.
