A Museum with a View

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. The four medieval towers host works from their famous collection of artifacts from the ancient civilization of Gandhara (present day Pakistan and Afghanistan), to the baroque and also afford an intoxicating view of Turin.
