The Civic Museum of Ancient Art in the Palazzo Madama is often a pleasant surprise for first time visitors who have likely seen their fair share of Italian art galleries. Palazzo Madama has evolved since the middle ages from a gate, to a fortress, to a castle, to the seat of the Royal Art Gallery and the first Senate of the Italian Kingdom. It has been the Civic Museum of Ancient Art since 1934.
