Beni al sicuro

The Ente Villa Carlotta in collaboration with the La Venaria Reale Centro di Conservazione e Restauro presents the project "Transmitting to the future: protection, maintenance, planned conservation."

With the contribution of the Cariplo Foundation, the two institutions undertake to tackle together the question of the preventive conservation of the museum and the botanical garden of Villa Carlotta. This is an essential challenge in order to ensure the transmission to future generations of a very unique inheritance, which includes the historical-artistic heritage, the landscape and the deep social and economic connections that inevitably are established with the context in which we live.
