The Etruscan room was used by Carlo Alberto as study, it is considered a masterpiece, maybe the most beautiful room in the Castle. Capello won the first prize at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London for the central table.

5 - Gabinetto di Apollo (Apollo's room)

All along the walls are represented important Greek, Latin and Italian poets and writers, you can recognize Torquato Tasso, Lodovico Ariosto, Teocrito and Orazio. In the fregio (frieze) are painted the Olympic games

The Queen used to play at whist in this room in the evening, the King used to play billiards in the adjoining room.

There was a beautiful plaster frieze depicting the Triumph of Lucius Aemilius Paulus all along the walls (where now there is the painted frieze). It was realized by Palagi, it was damaged by water infilitration (there is a terrace under the billiard room) and it was removed. Some pieces were discovered and saved.

The billiard table is oversized, becouse it is taller than commons billiard table infact it was realised for Carlo Alberto who was 2 mt tall.

Galleria del Cinema (Cinema's Gallery)

Vittorio Emanuele III and Queen Elena used to show motion pictures in this room. The first projection was reserved for the Royal Family, then also the servants could watch. Of course at the time of Vittorio Emanuele III there were not all these portraits.
