The royal Savoy Bucentaur

An outstanding artefact that miraculously went unscathed through time and recently underwent an exceptional restoration work, carried out by the La Venaria Reale Conservation and Restoration Centre, the Savoy Bucentaur is the only surviving Venetian example of an eighteenth-century boat used for ceremonies and parades.

Designed for river navigation, it was commissioned in 1729 by Victor Amadeus II as a floating Royal Palace and it was a real showcase to let the world know the power of the royal family.

About 16 metres high and 2.60 metres wide, the Bucentaur is now exhibited in the spectacular Juvarra Stables, representing one of the most evocative pieces of the tour at the Reggia
