Luogo - Museum
Where Via Po, 55, Torino
The Museum of Decorative Arts was set up at the bequest of antique dealer Pietro Accorsi (1891-1982). Hundreds of precious objects (Baccarat crystal, majolica, porcelain and silver) and extremely important Italian and French furniture are collected in about thirty rooms. It offers visitors a fascinating plunge into art and period tastes. It is a perfect match for visitors carrying on to the splendours of the Royal Palace and the Stupinigi Hunting Lodge, a route that leads to the discovery of the 18th century when Turin was among the leading European states.
