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 August 15 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.

Restoration after the war lacked the lavish decoration of the original, but its reputation received a boost in 1953 when Pablo Picasso chose the space to exhibit his painting Guernica.

Since 2000, careful restoration has begun to return the Hall of the Caryatids to its original glory. All traces of the wartime scorching have been removed and the ceiling, previously painted white, should one day achieve the same brilliance documented in nineteenth-century images.

In the 21st Century, the Royal Palace become a converging point of social and cultural affairs of the city of Milan.

Now visitors can walk among its halls and discover the four eras of the Palace: Neoclassical, Napoleonic, the Restoration and the Unification of Italy.
