This exhibition displays a part of the wealth of maps produced by the State of Savoy for administrative, military and fiscal purposes between the XVII and XIX centuries. They not only stand out for their geographical precision but also their aesthetic value. This exhibition is supplemented with multimedia installations that facilitate their interpretation. Two synchronised video montages open and close the journey: the first dedicated to the precious prints of Borgonio and Stagnone, the second recounting the delicate issue of the Italian-French border near the summit of Mont Blanc. An interactive installation enables viewers to explore a precious map of the Valley in detail, comparing it with present day aerial photos and view shots specifically taken for capturing its charming panoramas and majestic mountains.
