The Subalpine Senate

Since 1849 the Statute of Carlo Alberto establishes a Senate (Subalpine according to the name of Piedmont in the Napoleonic Empire) that collaborates with the King for the government and the laws: the absolute monarchy becomes constitutional. L.E. Melano sets up the Senate's room in Palazzo Madama, in the representation hall built on the courtyard of the medieval castle since the seventeenth century. It will remain there until 1860 when the Piedmontese kingdom became Italy.
