Stupinigi Hunting Trails

A few kilometers from Turin is the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi . The residence hosts a museum itinerary full of beauty, but it doesn’t disdain to lend itself as a location for many television and film productions such as “Elisa di Rivombrosa” or “War and Peace” .
A place rich in history that does not deny its past linked to hunting and parties and that today makes all its visitors dream for its romantic and richly decorated interiors.

History and Origins

The history of this place has its roots in the Middle Ages as the territory already had a small castle built to defend the town of Moncalieri , already a possession of the Savoy-Achaia. Passed from hand to hand, but it was only with Emanuele Filiberto that it officially became the House of Savoy , in 1564.
The sovereign, passionate about hunting, transformed the adjacent lands to make them suitable for this sport and making it the actual residence of the hunting lodge.
By testamentary will of the Duke, also Grand Master of the Mauritian Order –like every Savoy sovereign-, the property was left to the Order and in fact the Stupinigi fortress was found over the years to be managed by the various Savoy sovereigns who succeeded him.

Stupinigi between ‘700 and’ 800

The transformation of the complex into the structure that can be visited today only took place in 1729 when Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy entrusted the project to Filippo Juvarra. The building was inaugurated at the feast of Sant’Uberto in 1731 and since then numerous hunts and parties have been held. However, the residence never hosted the sovereigns and the court, for shorter or longer stays, stayed for one or two nights at most, as the Savoy family spent a few months in Turin.
Among the rare important events that hosted the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi there was the marriage of Maria Teresa of Savoy with the future king of France Charles X in 1773.  And in the 19th century the stay of  Napoleon Bonaparte, where stopped before going to Milan to surround the Iron Crown.
