Villa Tesoriera (1713)

The Villa Tesoriera is a villa in Turin surrounded by a vast garden open to the public. The house is called La Tesoriera (The Treasurer) because it was built, in 1713, for the powerful State Councilor and General Treasurer, Aymo Ferrero of Cocconato. The architect was Jacopo Maggi, who was inspired by the Guarino Guarini's style.
