In November, a photographic exhibition dedicated to the Royal House of Savoy was inaugurated in Turin. The event was the result of a collaboration between the Emanuele Cacherano di Bricherasio Foundation, whose scientific director is Giorgio Federico Siboni, a Knight of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, and the Centro Studi Piemontesi.
The exhibition presents handwritten texts of members of the Savoy dynasty. A remarkable item on display, thanks to a loan from the family of Cav. Siboni, is one of the exquisite wedding bonbonnieres made by the Musy goldsmiths on the design of the Prince himself, who later became our Sovereign Umberto II.
The exhibition in Turin is the third one supported by the Emanuele Cacherano di Bricherasio Foundation and draws on its vast photographic archive.
Located in the province of Biella (in Morzano di Roppolo) and housed in an architectural gem designed by Giacomo Salvadori di Wiesenhof, the Foundation was established in 1907 by Eleonora Massel di Caresana in memory of her grandson and devotes its work to promoting the culture and economy of the area.
Previous exhibitions in 2022, organised also with the collaboration of FAI – Piedmont, were officially supported by the Piedmont Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the House of Savoy.
The exhibition will remain open until the end of December 2023.
