Palazzina di Stupinigi was built as hunting residence according to the
will of Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoia.
It is one of the best architectonic works of art by Fillippo Juvarra. The complex is articulated into a series of buildings which have been symmetrically distributed in order to form a major exedra, a minor one, an opening, and an hexagonal honour courtyard. In it there is the three-floor mansion house with an ovoidal plant and decorated by a balustrade with pinnacles. In the middle of the roof there is a copper and bronze dome where the statue of a deer (probably by Francesco Ladatte) stands.
