From 16 May 2019 Palazzo Reale is celebrating the reopening of the Apartment of Foreign Princes, closed for over fifteen years. After a demanding round of extraordinary maintenance and refurbishment, seven rooms of the north wing overlooking the garden have reopened to the public. Designed by Filippo Juvarra between 1733 and 1734, they were completed by Benedetto Alfieri and partially remodelled by Pelagio Palagi in the mid-nineteenth century.
Together with the reopening of the Apartment of Foreign Princes, the public is also being presented with the restoration of the Royal Gallery, which used to welcome kings and queens to mass at the cathedral.
Compagnia di San Paolo supported the renovation of the premises, helping them guarantee accessibility by taking part in the project to expand the itinerary. This includes adding support staff from Ales-Arte Lavoro e Servizi in Palazzo Reale tour itineraries.
The renovation was also carried out thanks to the collaboration with Associazione Amici di Palazzo Reale, which offers guided tours at weekend.
The press conference to present the restoration and new layout of the Apartment of Foreign Princes and Royal Gallery was held on 16 May.
The event was held in memory of colleague Rosaria Cigliano for her constant endeavours to improve Palazzo Reale.
Laura Fornara was present on behalf of Compagnia di San Paolo.
