The project


I Duchi delle Alpi aims to turn the historical places connected to the house Savoy into a well-structured network for cultural experiences and tourism. Inspired by the legacy of the thousand-year old house of Savoy, the project enhances and gives value to the alpine cross-border territories from a modern and appealing perspective.

Thanks to new technologies we are able to preserve this heritage by opening up spaces formerly closed off to public. Celebrate and share a thousand-year story through thematic exhibitions in Italy and France.
