Synopsis: ITALIANS: AT THE COURT OF SIAM

At the end of the 19th century, the King of Siam made several trips to Europe and for some reason (whether it was because he was charmed by the Italian architecture or because the Italians didn't show any interest in colonizing anywhere in Asia) he commissioned several Italian architects to add beauty and majesty to his capital. Italian artists such as Rigotti, Manfredi and Feroci were working for years in the Thai capital Bangkok on the construction of buildings that are nowadays still in use and often very well preserved like Anantasamakhom, the Thai red cross building or Rachatiwas temple on the riverside. Over 100 years later, the history of the Italians at the Court of Siam is unveiled in a coffee table book written by Paolo Piazzardi and published on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Thailand and Italy. Together with the author, Exotissimo Travel Thailand is reviving the history of the Italians at the Court of Siam and will take you for a morning through "the Venice of the East" to discover the Italian legacy at often hidden locations in the city.
