The queen mansion, it’s a 16th building made for the will of the cardinal Maurizio di Savoia. Born in a hill, it was one of Savoia’s residence in Piemonte. Anna Maria di Orléans e Maria Antonia Ferdinanda di Spagna particularly loved this residence.
It was projected around 1615 by the Roman architect Ascanio Vitozzi the same Palazzo Reale’s designer, who couldn’t see the building ended, that’s why the architects Carlo e Amedeo di Castellamonte looked after the field house.
The plan is typical from the 17th century, with an Italian garden in the back amphitheatre. After the war and the Savoia’s exile, the villa lived almost 50 years decay but it was repaired from 1994. Now Villa Regina returned to his ancient glory, thanks to artistic and botanic restorations.
