The Fund houses a homogenous series of maps relating to the conduct and organization of the Savoy army during the Restoration, from 1814 to 1833. The provenance is unknown, but it is evident that this archive belongs to the papers of Count Bernardino Morra di Lavriano, whose name comes back several times in the documentary complex and to which many of the deals are related. The series of documents integrates similar series present at the State Archives of Turin and contains numerous quantitative information on the army units, in particular the Savona Brigade, but also data on the training and management of individual sectors of the Savoy armed forces, not excluding health aspects and war councils.
