Two pics of the royal appartments: the red room, used as reception room, and King Vittorio Emanuele II bedchamber. Both the rooms are in the second floor of the Royal Palace.

For an Italian, visiting the Royal Palace of the last Italian royalties is heartbreaking: it is not possible to escape the comparison between the style, magnificence and merits of the Savoy dynasty and the state of its latest scions. The visit is not very expensive. The rooms (which were used for the last time by the late King Umberto right before his coronation and exile) are very well kept. Unfortunately in Summer time, so we were told, the private apartments cannot be seen because they are open only in the Fall.

I think they should copy the Versailles Fund gather donations globally. Those who donate large amounts get special kudos.

It's really very interesting! Thanks for posting. I read some letters the Tsar wrote to his mother during his stay in Racconigi but never I had never seen extracts of his diary.
Joanna, do you know where I could find the whole part of the Tsar's diary dedicated to his visit in Italy in 1909?

I have some photos of Racconigi etc., I will send them along to you in the next days.

Did you also know that Nicholas II bought at least two paintings depicting Racconigi and Pollenzo from the italian painter Giuseppe Augusto Levis? The King of Italy appreciated very much his works as well. That's probably how the Tsar got to know him.

Nowadays these paintings are probably lost, I only have b&w photos of them.
