NICHELINO – The Stupinigi Hunting Lodge – The Deer

n the outside, the dome is decorated with a sculpture of a deer by Francesco Ladatte. This work, like other paintings, frescoes and statues, was meant to symbolise the original function of the building.
The Stupinigi Hunting lodge was a spectator to the alternating fates of the Italian monarchy. Used to host parties and gatherings for the Piedmontese aristocracy, Napoleon turned it into his country residence during his reign and, from 1803, he also invited Paolina Bonaparte to stay. In 1842, it was used for the wedding of Victor Emanuel II and Maria Adelaide di Lorena, while between 1900 and 1919, it was used by queen Margherita as her summer residence.
The building, which is listed as a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO, is furnished with original period furniture and houses the Museum of Art and Furniture.
