Piedmont Museums And Galleries

Let's enjoy Fine And Unusual Museums in Piedmont...

Barolo. It's a village with a castle about 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of the regional capital, Turin. It's also a wine - the king of wines and the wine of kings. Try it, you'll like it. Maybe. It's a red, a real Italian red. And Barolo, in the heart of the Piedmont wine country, is the ideal ideal location for a wine museum.

Turin is the capital of the Piedmont. It is the center of the Italian automobile industry. So don't be surprised that it's home to a top of the line museum, the Museo dell'Automobile. For more information consult http://www.museoauto.it/website/en

Sometimes life is full of surprises. With some 30 thousand exhibits, the Museo Egizio is the the most important collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts outside of Cairo. For more information consult http://www.comune.torino.it/musei/en/elenco/egizio.shtml

Time and space prevent us from discussing all Turin museums. You can get a very extensive list at http://www.comune.torino.it/musei/en/elenco Of particular interest are the Borgo e Rocca Medievale (a Piedmont village of the Middle Ages), the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, and the Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento Italiano devoted to the struggle for Italian unity, a struggle largely centered in the Piedmont.
