The Merenda Reale is a not -to-be-missed ritual following the "peculiar customs" of the18th century Savoy Court. In this version the hot chocolate, whose cocoa beans were brought from America to Piemonte by the Savoy family, plays a leading role. Moreover, it celebrates the noble art of pastry making in Torino with its "bagnati" (biscuits for dunking) and some chocolate specialties.
The "reverence" for chocolate continues also in the 19th century, a period in which cafés flourished in Torino as a place for meeting, culture and politics. There you can drink a Bicerin, the traditional morning beverage together with sweet delights of the noble art of patisserie.Garibaldi and parisien, chifel and democratic, biciolan and pan gindru are just some of the names of the new sweet delicacies created in the 1800s for best accompanying the new drink.
Choose between MERENDA REALE in 18th century style or MERENDA REALE 19th century style.
The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture. Many international scholars, since the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs Jean-François Champollion, who came to Turin in 1824, spend much time pouring over the collections.
It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin”. The collections that make up today’s Museum were enlarged by the excavations conducted in Egypt by the Museum’s archaeological mission between 1900 and 1935 (a period when finds were divided between the excavators and Egypt).
The National Cinema Museum was opened in july 2000 in the building that symbolises Turin the Mole Antonelliana.The exhibition space covers 3.200 square metres and spans five floors. The themes of the floors are: the Archaeology of Cinema, the Film Camera, a Collection of Cinema Posters, Video Installations and the great Temple. In a spectacular setting the museum offers artefacts from the collection of the Maria Adrianna Prolo Foundation including: magic lanterns, optical illusions, photographs, drawings, models and other curious items.
