Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento, Turin

4.3
#9 of 62 in Museums in Turin
The first, and largest, museum to pay homage to the risorgimento (Italian unification) movement in Italy, Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento is in one of Turin's most beautiful palaces. The original copy of Italy's national anthem, "Il Canto degli Italiani," is in the library, which houses a documentary archive and the literary works that helped to inspire the unification movement. Almost every room of the museum is filled with paintings, artifacts, and documents. In the multimedia room, watch films depicting the creation of many of Italy's Renaissance innovations, as well as the notable personalities of the risorgimento. You can ask for a touchscreen audio and visual guide at the main entrance.

  • Well structured Museum, which embraces nearly two centuries of history, from the birth of the Republics and captured the formation of the Kingdom of Italy, the first world war. Moving to visit the places that have seen Charles Emmanuel II become King of Italy to source such a Parliament made up of great men, a ruling class that allowed our country to align the European national States. A must see in dark times!

  • Must visit; the building is notable and has a priceless collection of engravings and documents about the Italian unit. Who will bring me to October 14 to organize a guided tour sue Italian unity for members of the House of the Europe in Albertville. Remarkable; the old Senate of Savoy.

  • Interesting museum experience that reconstructs the full epic of Italian Renaissance stage (pre and post also Unitarian). There are also original exhibits and the first Italian Parliament.

  • The history is not really presented in a coherent manner although the exhibits are interesting. The debating chamber is a must see. More could have been made of this
  • Great museum a must visit on every people's bucket list.
  • The museum is good but honestly underwhelming considering the importance of the subject matter. Only the original parliament is really wotth seeing.
  • Nice museum about a brief part of Italian's history ("Risorgimento"). They are the only ones in Europe to maintain a parliament from an absolutist regime, which is quite nice. Anyway, I don't enjoy the way the museum shows the Risorgimento (e.g. a museum on the same subject in Napoli would be completely different)
  • Very good place to understand the process of the creation of the Italian country
