In 1577 Emanuele Filiberto, then Duke of Savoy, was fighting, along with his cousin, Philip II, against the French. On the eve of the Battle of San Quentin – on San Lorenzo Day, August 10 - vowed to erect, in case of victory, a church in honour of the Saint. In Madrid, Philip II ordered the construction of the abbey built in the shape of a grid , an instrument of the martyrdom of the saint. In 1562 on his return to Turin Emanuele Filiberto, unable to immediately erect the church, fortified the city and restored the ducal chapel "Santa Maria della Natività" dedicated to San Lorenzo.The duke died without having built a real church that was consecrated only in 1680 by Guarino Guarini, a seventeenth-century genius of architecture in Turin. This church has a simple facade, uniformed to nearby buildings. In place of the ancient church of Santa Maria there is the Oratory just before the Church. The interior is octagonal with convex sides, topped by a dome with a lantern light.
Behind the sides there are four chapels diagonally concave. The structure, reduced to essential elements, captures light through large windows and gives the building a strong vertical impetus. The shell of the dome is supported by columns of serliane; it is illuminated by eight elliptical windows and crossed by a system of ribs forming an eight-pointed star at its centre and it is a regular octagon. The number eight , infact, the symbol of perfection and infinity of Christian esotericism.

The Savoy had already a collection of Egyptian antiquities in ‘700, which were added to the exhibits and statues brought from Vitaliano Donati, sent to Egypt by Carlo Emanuele III. In 1824 Carlo Felice bought the collection of approx. 8000 items to Drovetti Bernardino, Consul General of France in Egypt, providing it with the current location creating, in fact, the first Egyptian museum in the world. The exhibition is divided into three floors and a visit to the most important things of the collection takes not less than two hours. On the ground floor, in the two rooms of the Statuary, two sphinxes are shown with the face of Amenhotep III, a statue of a goddess with diadem, the monumental statues of Amenhotep II, Ramses II in black basanite, Sethi II, Princess Redi, the Group of King Tut and the god Amenca III, the statue of Thutmose III and large stone sarcophagi.
In the next room the temple of rock Ellesija, dating from about 1450 BC, was rebuilt. We find tombstones and gravestones and funerary customs documented: mummies, sarcophagi, canopic jars, statues, amulets, and "Books of the Dead." More important papyri are among the 'the other' material, like the list of the pharaohs of Egypt to the seventeenth dynasty, or the Papyrus of the tomb of Ramses IV. Other precious relic is the "Mensa Isis," a bronze tablet with depictions of religious ceremonies in honour of the goddess Iside. In the sarcophagi section there are examples of high quality stone, but also very interesting collection of mummies of sacred animals, connected to worship of deities. The library specializes in Egyptological books and it has a fund of more than 6000 volumes.
