Oggi, verso il tramonto, ero su quel campo della Venaria che e' uno dei piu' vasti e solenni spettacoli dell'Italia Subalpina, colla massa rossa e bianca del castello sabaudo, coi boschi della Mandria che vaporano nell'aria cinerea, colle Prealpi plumbee accosciate nella caligine, colla piramide del Monviso che ha l'ardimento fantastico di una nuvola, coll'esercito delle nevose cime sul confine che veglia l'enormita' di sogni nel cielo fluido silenzioso e saturo.
Gabriele D'Annunzio, 22 febbraio 1910
This omnipotent building La Reggia was declared a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1997.
It is a truly amazing Baroque work of art. Not only is it worth visiting from an architectural point of view but also for Its works of art. It offers a variety of different experiences and emotions: The Grand gallery in all its majesty, Diana’s room, Goddess of hunting portrayed by stuccos and Saint Umberto’s church. The stables where exhibitions are held, stroll through the gardens or watch the multi medial videos directed by Peter Greenaway. The evening light show to music at the weekend is a must.
