Italy: Palazzo Carignano in Turin

On Wednesday I got a postcard from Italy.

It shows the Palazzo Carignano in Turin. The Palazzo Carignano was built between 1679 and 1704 in the Baroque style as a private residence of the Princes of Carignano, a cadet branch of the House of Savoy. In 1820 Victor Emmanuel II, the first King of Italy, was born at the palace and since 1938 the palace houses the oldest, biggest and most important museum about the Risorgimento, the National Museum of the Italian Risorgimento. As one of the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy is the Palazzo Carignano since 1997 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a related stamp and another nice stamp:
Giuseppe Mazzini (from set of three) (issued 10-03-1972)
Giuseppe Mazzini was an Italian politician and journalist. His efforts helped bring about the independent and unified Italy.
60 years Treaty of Rome (issued 25-03-2017)

Thank You very much Renato!
