- The Museo di Arti Decorative is the pride and joy of the Accorsi Foundation, founded in December 1999, as requested in the will of the great torinese antiques dealer Pietro Accorsi. All the details of an aristocratic, piedmontese residence of the eighteenth century are reconstructed in the rooms of this historic building which was designed by Amedeo Castellamonte. The collection is the fruit of decades of research from all over Italy. Particularly outstanding exhibits are a Madonna from the fifteenth century and six Empire style chairs which were a wedding present for Paolina Bonaparte.
