Unfortunately I don't know exactly, the original caption didn't mentioned which palace exactly, but maybe it can be the Royal Palace of Naples.
The Royal Palace of Naples was seriously damaged during the bombing of the second world war...but I have to say that probably this can be another Palace that now I don't recognize...

That is Palazzo Te in Mantua, it was a favourite summer palace of the Gonzagas.

Thank you very much gleb!, I visited Mantua a few years ago but I haven't visited the palace, I think that I should come back to Mantua and visit it, is this a museum now, right?

As far as I know he is buried at the Hautecombe Abbey, in France, Maria José she is also there.

Any plans to rebury them in Italian soil ? In Sardinia or Turin at least ?

I think that there are no plans to rebury them here in Italy for now, or at least, I haven't heard nothing about it... :-\

Sad. At least they allow Queen Frederica of Greece to be buried in Tatoi. It would be nice to bring Umberto & Marie Jose back to Rome.

yes it is a museum, but it is not near the main monuments such as the Ducal Palace, so many tourists don't visit it, though it is absolutely worth of a visit.

it would be not only nice but fair, I mean he was the King of Italy so he should rest in the Pantheon. There were plans to bury them and VE III with Queen Elena in Turin, but Umberto II refused. The Kings and the Queens of Italy will be buried in Rome or they will remain where they are, something like this he said.

It will depend on the son of Umberto on what he wants to do. The Kings of Italy were also Kings of Sardinia and Duke of Savoy. Turin would not be a bad place to be buried.
