Right in the center of town, the church of St. Filippo Neri is a short walk from the Egyptian Museum and Palazzo Carignano. Begun in the late seventeenth century, the court architect Filippo Juvarra completed the work in 1823. The nave is surmounted by a barrel vault and the style is a blend of baroque and neoclassical, this is the result of various alterations before its final realisation.
The most significant work of the Church is represented by the piece adorning the main altar called Paliotto del Piffetti, named after the famous cabinetmaker of Turin to whom it was commissioned in 1749. Now it’s preserved at the museum MIAAO.
