Notes: Palazzo Madama e Casaforte degli Acaja is a palace in Turin, northern Italy. It was the first Senate of the Italian Kingdom, and takes its traditional name from the embellishments it received under two queens (madama) of the House of Savoy. The Palazzo Madama houses Turin's Turin City Museum of Ancient Art. Depite its name, it is a large collection of paintings, statues, church ornaments, porcelain, and decorative art, mostly from the late Middle Ages to the 18th Century. Turin's museum of ancient art, called Museo dell'Antichità, is located in another place.
