This volume was published on the occasion of the restoration of one of the most attractive residences of the Savoy court, the Villa della Regina in Turin. Divided into five sections, this book collects research on oriental furnishings and their imitation in Piedmont: iconography and techniques from China are studied in comparison with the great European and decorative repertoires in relation to the taste for exoticism widespread in the eighteenth century. The result of long research by scholars from different disciplines, the book reconstructs missing furnishings (paper, textiles, panels and screens in lacquer, and porcelain cabinets, manufactured in the orient and Europe). Profusely illustrated. Text in Italian.
