Christine of France (Paris 1606-Turin 1663) and Giovanna Battista of Savoy Nemours (Paris 1644-Turin 1724), were two iconic figures of European history, who used their feminine wiles to strengthen and defend the role and autonomy of their status. The exhibition features more than 120 works, including paintings, objets d’art, furnishings, fabrics, jewelry, ceramics, drawings and engravings. It traces the lives of the two Royal Madames in a chronological itinerary that explores court life during the Baroque era in the surroundings in which both women lived.
