After the siege

Given the position at the edge of the walls, the Royal Palace was badly damaged in the siege of Turin in 1640 and in the following years it was renovated and basically rebuilt on the front of Piazza Castello by Carlo and Amedeo of Castellamonte in its current form at the behest of the regent, Cristina of France (the first real madama).

The location on the border of the walls is clear until the half of 1800. Here the beautiful "Royal Palace seen from outside the walls" painted by Bernardo Bellotto, 1745
