Built in 1675, the Venaria Reale, known for its gorgeous architecture and sumptuous gardens, was one of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy. It was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997.

Following the parade, artists and their accompanying delegations will be brought inside to the majestic Galleria Grande of the Reggia, where they will be welcomed by the Mayor of Turin Stefano Lorusso, by the Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl, and by Executive Producers Simona Martorelli and Claudio Fasulo.
