The inside story

One of the grandest spaces of the Palazzo Reale is the Hall of the Caryatids. It was here that grand royal receptions would be held and where the glitterati of Europe would gather to dance and drink in opulent surroundings. History would not always be so kind, however.

Milan was bombed by the British on 15 August 1943, causing a fire that destroyed the roof of the Caryatid Hall, crashed the balconies and ruined the stucco. Materials were scorched and the Appiani paintings kept there were ruined. The hall was unusable.
