The Masters of Baroque
As from the 17th Century, the House of Savoy’s determined efforts to build monuments to its power in the city, gave Turin a very recognisable identity.
Some of the period’s leading artists and architects produced works of immense value in Turin, and the historic centre’s churches are the most sumptuous testimony to Baroque magnificence.
Find out which churches these “Maestri” worked on, and learn more about the long succession of other historical figures who built churches and produced the artworks that adorn them.
