It is part of the World Heritage Site Residences of the Royal House of Savoy.HistoryMoncalieri was founded in 1228 by some inhabitants of Testona as a refuge from the assaults from Chieri. The easy access to the Po River and the bridge that it commanded granted a certain flourishing to the city, which became a free comune and housed a number of monastic institutions.In the 17th century it was acquired by the House of Savoy, whose members often lived in their castle here during the summer. During the unification of Italy it was the site of the famous Proclamation of Moncalieri.
