For the anniversary of 150 years of Italy unification, events in Italy and all over the world where Italian communities are (I doubt there is a single country without at least a few Italian families…) are being held in these days and also at Venaria Reale, near Turin, Esperienza Italia 150 will be present from March to November 2011.
In my last trip to Torino (Turin) the first capital of the Italian Kingdom, I visited the magnificent Palace of Venaria, the country secondary residence for the Savoy family, the dynasty that ruled over Italy after Unification until the end of Second World War. In the picture on top you can see a special version of Flap sofa by Francesco Binfarè for Edra this time with the colors of the Italian flag, produced exclusively for the 150th anniversary of Italy.
A few images of Venaria from my previous trip.
Esperienza Italia (Italy experience): an incredible, fascinating series of events on
Italian art, history, fashion, food, style and design.
