A fire broke out at Cavallerizza Reale, Turin's Royal Horse Yard, on Monday morning. Part of the roof has collapsed at the north Italian city's Unesco site.
Firefighters worked through the morning to get the blaze under control and to stop it reaching any other historic buildings nearby. There are have been no reported casualties from the former stables.
Cavallerizza Reale was originally built as part of palaces for the ruling Savoy family over the 17-18th centuries.
The cause of the fire is yet to be established.
