La Venaria Reale

From Squares to Courts


The exhibition “From Squares to Courts” presents rare iconographic evidence of the 18th and 19th centuries, including paintings from some of the Royal Residences of the House of Savoy and precious posters, some of which refer to the “circus” that was just then taking its first steps.

Among the works on display is an important puppet theatre dating back to the end of the 18th century and a section of the exhibition is dedicated specifically to magic lanterns, optical boxes and phantasmoscopes.
