Things to see
In the following decades the Palace was used for many different purposes. It became the headquarter of the French government under the Napoleon’s dominion; King Charles Albert transformed it into the Royal Art Gallery and later installed here the Subalpine Senate and the High Court.
During the fascist era Palazzo Madama became the Museo Civico di Arte Antica, City Museum of Ancient Art. In reality the museum hosts a collection of artworks from the Middle Ages to the 18th century.
