Surrounded by leafy vegetation in the Crystal Palace Gardens, this 19th-century mansion recreates characteristic interiors of the bourgeoisie of the time.
Among the highlights is the "King's Room" where King Carlos Alberto of Piedmont and Sardinia received his guests, and which is furnished and decorated in 19th-century style.
Another noteworthy section is the "Canvases Room" which has huge tempera-painted canvases depicting scenes of typical Romantic ruins.
