The apartment, inhabited for centuries by the Savoy nobility, still preserves its vestiges in the frescoed ceilings or in polychrome coffered as well as in the wooden floors with geometric designs or planks.
Items of great high value belong to the original building of the late 17th century, such as polychrome coffered ceilings, paintings on the walls, wooden squared floorboards, mirrors and gilded stuccos above doors.
A subsequent structural transformation of the mid-nineteenth century by Alessandro Antonelli – author of the Mole Antonelliana which became a symbol of the city of Turin – is visible in the marble staircase and in the access to the courtyard-side veranda.
The gilded stuccos and frescoes on the ceilings of the main hall – signed and dated by the court painter of the House of Savoy, Francesco Gonin (Royal Palace, Villa della Regina) – and of the study – by Federigo Pastoris (Borgo Medioevale del Valentino) – are also from this period.
