Among the activities organized to celebrate the centenary of the Unification of Italy, Turin and Piedmont managed to access funding for the restoration of the State owned castles. This financing was particularly relevant as important building projects could be started which involved long conservation processes, and in some cases which have only been concluded recently. The merit of the leading figures of these interventions, the Supervisors, was to remove a cultural heritage of European significance from oblivion, largely unknown even to the Piedmontese people themselves.
