The new audio and video guides system was donated by the Consulta. Visitors opting for this tool may select a “short” itinerary along the 30 exhibition rooms with the explanation of the three most significant objects on display in each of them, which takes about 45 minutes.
The Museo Torino, opened on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Italian Unity, is an innovative museum, both “virtual and real” at the same time and quite unique in Italy and over Europe, originally created to collect, preserve and promote the awareness of the cultural heritage of the city.
The Consulta financed the restoration of the gouache gilding, the lacquered painting and the painting of the ceiling. The restoration works were preceded by a study of the techniques used and photographs were taken of the site before the intervention.
Presso la Fondazione Camillo Cavour di Santena, nell’archivio della famiglia Cavour, è presente una preziosa documentazione circa le fasi di costruzione della cappella, dal 1862, con aggiornamenti e trasformazioni degli anni novanta dell’Ottocento e con i disegni dell’intervento di consolidamento avvenuto nel 1932.
The Exhibition highlighted the rich creativity of the Lenci manufacture with a wide collection of pottery, drawings and plaster works from several private collection and from the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery of Turin.
