#7 of 67 in Museums in Turin
The first, and largest, museum to pay homage to the risorgimento (Italian unification) movement in Italy, Museum of the Risorgimento is in one of Turin's most beautiful palaces. The original copy of Italy's national anthem, "Il Canto degli Italiani," is in the library, which houses a documentary archive and the literary works that helped to inspire the unification movement. Almost every room of the museum is filled with paintings, artifacts, and documents. In the multimedia room, watch films depicting the creation of many of Italy's Renaissance innovations, as well as the notable personalities of the risorgimento. You can ask for a touchscreen audio and visual guide at the main entrance. For Museum of the Risorgimento and beyond, use our Turin trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Turin vacation.

  • We were really disappointed by this museum. The Risorgimento is such a great story with fantastic characters but the museum failed to bring them to life. They can do so much better than filling room....  more »

  • Thank god I have a degree in history where I studied Italy otherwise I would have understood 0% of this museum. As it stands I understood about 2%. The rooms have no real logic to them. There’s limited explanation as to what you’re looking at and why. Also it’s more a history of France than anything else. There was an exhibition with nice pictures at the end, but as always, zero context. Too bad...
  • Not conventional. Looks at the 1861 unification of Italy through influences going back to Bonaparte, The Congress of Vienna, revolutions across Europe. Ends at outbreak of WW I. Puts 19th C. Europe all in one place, focusing on Italy, using lots from the popular press on both sides. Cards in cubbies in each room explain stuff in multiple languages. Bring imagination and a love of sweep.
