Many say the cradle was Vittorio Emanuele II's one, and it was the famous cradle where he slept when a fire broke out caused accidentally by his nunny Teresa Racca. It is not true, the cradle was made for Princess Clotilde wife of Gerome Bonaparte.

Those rooms were used in 1842 by Ranieri and Maria Elisabetta during Vittorio Emanuele (II) and Maria Adelaide's wedding.

The great painting neat the fireplace represents the "Ostensione della Sacra Sindone in Piazza Castello a Torino" (Ostension of the Holy Shroud in Piazza Castello-Turin), it is by Peter Borgomans. We can also recognize two portraits of Carlo Emanuele (IV) and Vittorio Amedeo II.

All the furnitures of this apartment are very rich and they are made in maple tree. They were realized in 1840 by Palagi and Capello for the Duke of Savoia's marriage (Vittorio Emanuele II). They were in the apartment of the second floor, wich was then used by Umberto II.

Princess Mafalda married Philip von Hessen in this room in 1925. The religious ceremony took place in the ground floor, the chapel has an apse comunicating with the Eolo's gallery, so the guests could see the marriage from it, becouse the chapel is not very big.
