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.

  • A beautiful Italian Risorgimento Museum where you can explore beautiful subalpine Parliament Chamber.

  • Of the French revolution in the twentieth century, this museum traces the history of troubled and violent nation, the Italy in creation.

  • A dip in the roots of our country that reserves strong emotions and renews a sense of belonging, perhaps a bit too faded. Spectacular architecture, settings, perfect exposure and equally well suited. A visit not to be missed, should also and especially schoolchildren who are preparing to study this important historical period. Shame about the close of the first subalpine Parliament, visible only by a glass wall.

  • Great content.. need more space and better side services as many other Italian museums..
  • Museum of inestimable value. Visit first subalpine Parliament reserve environments excitement and renews a sense of belonging to the motherland perhaps too dormant in most of us. Perfect exposure and spectacular architecture. A must-visit advisable for children who are preparing to study this important historical period

  • Interesting for fans of national history, but the exhibits are organized in a very traditional and not interactive, as it is used today. Beautiful palazzo Carignano that hosts it.

  • Inside the Museum there is the circular Hall that hosted the first subalpine Parliament between 1848-1860, there is a large room that was supposed to host the Italian Parliament and that was finished when the city was no longer the capital of Italy

  • A great opportunity to brush up on history and to understand how the world today was written at that time. Don't miss the Hall of Parliament cisalpino!
