The Royal Library is housed under the porticoes on the ground floor of the Royal Palace. It is essential for scholars of the Savoy family. The library was fitted out on the orders of Carlo Alberto by Pelagio Palagi around 1840 with works that were transferred from the "library of His Majesty". The most important item in the collection is the set of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, in particular his famous "Self portrait," the "Codex on the flight of birds," and the study of the face for the "Virgin of the Rocks."
