The original table made by Peters was moved to another room of the Castle, in the 2° floor, the chairs are original of Carlo Alberto's time.

Many portraits have been hung on the walls by Umberto II, this set of real size portrait come fro Moncalieri Castle, this was a set starting with Beroldo and ending with Vittorio Emanuele II, it was commissioned by Vittorio Amedeo III. We can recognize Amedeo IX in the right.

16 - Sala del Mappamondo (Globe's room)

This room houses a set of equestrian portraits said the "serie a cavallo",  they were taken from Moncalieri too.  We can see Vittorio Amedeo I. The door shows Cinati and Trifoglio's gallery

An old photo of the gallery with Umberto II's collection. It is important also becouse Umberto II assembled not only portraits, but also busts, statues, paintings of Royal Palaces. He was interested in all concerned His August House.

10 - Galleria di Cinati e Trifoglio (Cinati and Trifoglio's gallery)

This photo was taken in 1980 when the gallery was full of portraits, now they have been taken away, becouse they ruined the painted walls

Cinati and Trifoglio were the painters of the grotesquerie that covers all the sides and the ceiling. This gallery was used to link the guest apartment (now called Vittorio Emanuele III and Queen Elena's one) to the main part of the Castle. It was used in 1840 and in 1842 by Ranieri the viceroy of the Lombardo-Veneto.

When Vittorio Emanuele III gave the castle to his son, he renounced also to live in his apartement at the second floor that became Maria Josè's one. Umberto II instead lived in the former apartment of Vittorio Emanuele II. So Umberto II wanted to furnish an apartment for his Parents in case they came to Racconigi. He chose the guest apartment, it is in the south part of the left Melano's new wing facing the avant court of the Castle.
