Invitation to court

Built in the mid-1600s as a hunting lodge for Charles Emmanuel II, it was designed by Amedeo di Castellamonte who made the central Hall of Diana an ideal junction point between the palazzo and the gardens.

Victor Amadeus II commissioned first Garove and then Juvarra to work on the building, and they created some of its masterpieces: the Great Gallery, the Church of St Hubert and the complex consisting of the Great Stables and the Orangerie. Later on, Benedetto Alfieri created the "Rondò" with the statues representing the Seasons.

After a long restoration, the Palace with its fascinating tour is now the home to major exhibitions and concerts: a cultural project in which the ancient and the new combine harmoniously.
