Thanks, Alberto, this is a very interesting article.
Unfortunately, now the palace has been turned into a hotel...

Royal Palace in Roma?

Hello! I have visited Roma few weeks ago and I haven't seen the Royal Palace.

What was the Royal residence of the King of Italy during the reign of Saboya Dynasty?

My guide said me that the Royal Palace was in Turin...

Regards!

The Royal Palace in Rome was the Quirinal Palace; before it was used as a Papal residence. Now it's the residence and office of the President of the Republic.

The Quirinal Palace (known in Italian as the Palazzo del Quirinale or simply the Quirinale) is the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic on the Quirinal Hill, the tallest of the seven hills of Rome. It was used by Kings mainly for state functions.

Carlo Emanuele II's reception room in the Royal Palace of Turin was the Green Room. It was also called the Room of Time. The gilded ceiling carried allegorical paintings of day, night, the year, and eternity.

Duke Emanuele Filiberto (1528-80) kept mineral items in his galleries at Turin.
He had different types of marble from the various quarries of Piedmont.
The Large Gallery held collections of medals, weapons, and antiquities under Carlo Emanuele I and he organized a library and an observatory with all kinds of books, mathematical instruments, and codices.
On January 20th, 1752, which was his 36th birthday, Charles III, the Bourbon king of Naples, laid the first stone of the Royal Palace of Caserta.
On top of the foundation stone, Luigi Vanvitelli, the architect of the Royal Palace of Caserta, laid a stone inscribed with a Latin phrase that read "May the Royal Palace, the Papal Seat and the Royal power last till this stone sees the sun again."

Before it was bought by Queen Margherita, villa Etelinda (formerly Bishoffsheim) was owned by the 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, father of the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
