The queen's apartment in the "Palazzina di caccia di Stupinigi" was built in the 1830s for Polissena d'Assia-Rheinfels-Rotenburg, wife of Carlo Emanuele III of Savoy, during the stay of the court at the palace for the seasonal hunting battle.
The panorama represents the Anteroom and chamber of the queen Frescoed between 1733 and 1734 by the painter Giovanni Battista Crosato (formerly operating at the villa La Tesoriera) with the painting on the ceiling depicting The sacrifice of Iphigenia, surrounded by eighteenth-century views. The queen's anteroom is one of the four rooms that appears on the central hall of the building. Between 1738 and 1739 the frescoes were flanked by the new production of the painter Francesco Casoli which were partially flanked by the work of Giuseppe Maria Bonzanigo who remodeled the room from 1786, proposing it again in Louis XVI style. In this anteroom there are four oval paintings depicting princesses of the Savoy house, by an unknown artist, including Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia-Nemours and Maria Cristina of Bourbon-France. Interesting are the frame decorations on the walls, made in blue glass and gilded metal, always part of Bonzanigo's work.

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
