The French Expositions are thought to have provided the inspiration for these five Turin events.

Italy had been occupied successively by the Spanish, the French and the Austrians. Napoléon making north-central Italy a client state of the French Empire and installed his brother-in-law as the King of Naples. The Conference of Vienna took the situation back to where it had been in the eighteenth century. It took until 1870 for a full unification of what we consider as Italy today.

It was Torino (Turin) that led the way for Italian exhibitions running its Pubblica Esposizione de Prodotti dell Industria Nazionale in 1829, and again in 1832. This then expanded its approach to encompass national agricultural, industrial, commercial, and applied arts in 1838, 1844 and 1850.

Little data could be discovered about these five events (other than images of the catalogue covers!).

The city’s expositions were however sustained well into the 20th century.
