Palazzo Scaglia di Verrua

The Palazzo Scaglia di Verrua is a historical building in Turin, at via Stampatori, just a few steps from via Garibaldi. Of great documentary value, is one of the few examples of sixteenth-century building that had not been affected by changes of the Baroque period, but able to keep its original Renaissance appearance.

The external facade is unique in its kind in the city, has a theme of frescoes by Antonio Parentani, dated 1603.

It is a  splendid building with geat value.
