Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy returns to Savigliano

The Great and ... the Granda

It seems that Nostradamus had predicted the death of Carlo Emanuele I "on the road to Jerusalem". Lived between 1562 and 1630 "the Great" perhaps willingly renounced pilgrimages to the Holy Land but met his death in "his" Savigliano, at Palazzo Cravetta, which still faces - look at case - on Via Jerusalem.
The beautiful loggia decorated with the marble busts of 12 princes and princesses of the Savoy dynasty and enriched by the frescoes of Francesco and Costanzo Arbaudi (around 1624) is the ideal starting point to immerse yourself in the "Ars Regia. La Granda alchemica" exhibition organized by Le Terre dei Savoia association and curated by Enzo Biffi Gentili.

In fact, before entering the mystery of the death of Carlo Emanuele I (struck by the plague), in the hall that housed his remains, Loredana De Robertis, on behalf of the Múses, curated a historical introduction that helps the visitor to retrace the salient stages of the special relationship between the Duke called "the Great" and nicknamed "Testa di Fuoco" for the fighting spirit.

Famous for having challenged the Spanish giant but also for its attention to the arts, we find it in some portraits as well as in the projects for the Arc de Triomphe that in 1585 was created by Giovan Battista Ripa precisely for his passage to Savigliano together with the neo bride: the Infanta of Spain, Caterina Michela of Habsburg. Whoever visits the Ars Regia exhibition starting from the open gallery participates in this ideal wedding procession through a scenic reproduction. In the background an evocation of Carlo Emanuele I with the three most significant female figures of his life: his mother, Margherita di Valois; his wife Caterina Michela of Habsburg; the daughter-in-law, Maria Cristina of France: first "Madama Reale".

A tribute to the women of the House of Savoy who certainly attended the beautiful buildings in which the 8 sections of the exhibition unfold and which perhaps played a not secondary role in the frequentation of the Savoy princes with the Ars Regia.

Conference on the Corte dei Savoia at the "G. Pariani" nursing home in Oleggio Eventi in Novara

Because the culture belongs to everyone, but above all it can be used by those who cannot leave the health resort due to illness or motor impediments:
the "G. Pariani" Retirement Home of Oleggio, under the patronage of the Municipality of Oleggio, in collaboration with the Civic Museum, organizes a conference, open to the whole population, by Maria Rosa Marsilio, historian, author and television presenter :
"Royal Madame, intrigue, power, passion at the Savoy court of the 1600s"

The public will be accompanied on a real "journey through time" to the discovery of the Ducal Court of the Savoys of the 1600s. Two French Princesses who will become not only a cause for scandals and "licentious" gossip but that they will give to the city of Turin, to Piedmont, those stylistic, cultural, social innovations, capable of transporting the Savoy State from a lazy Renaissance to the opulent splendor of the Baroque. Through the paintings of the time, the photos of wonderful royal residences, the loves, intrigues and regrets of the royal princesses who linked their destiny to the Piedmont of the 1600s will be revealed.

Saturday 26 October at 3 pm at the "Dott. G. Pariani" Foundation, via Dante 93 Oleggio. Free entry.
