The Royal Palace, the gardens and the Potager Royals
The Potager Royals
April 16th 2011, exactly one month from the beginning of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Royal Palace of Venaria has inaugurated the largest Potager Royal in Italy. The last piece of the long recovery and restoration work that from 1996 to today has involved the monumental complex of the Reggia di Venaria Reale. 10 hectares, 1500 fruit trees, 3 years of work to make it happen. These are some of the figures that distinguish an ambitious project, especially in times of recession, when culture, environment and education are increasingly becoming neglected sectors. The history of the Royal Palace of Venaria Reale is complex and troubled.
