– Camera da letto (bedroom)

The large bedroom is a private area of the residence used by the lady of the castle who would spend time with her female companions reading or embroidering. The ceiling painted with rosettes, the large fireplace, and the architectural decoration of the matching doors, are replicas of those in the King of France’s Room in Issogne Castle. It has walls covered in silk tapestry with the Savoy motto and numerous pieces of furniture: two carved chests for storing clothes and a cupboard for everyday objects, a round table and various chairs. The four-poster bed constitutes a further small room which, thanks to the closed curtains, better retains the heat.
On the outside wall is the door to the latrine, masked by a tapestry, like that found in a stately room in Verrès Castle.
During the Second World War, the room, built in 1884, was completely destroyed by bombing and was rebuilt in the 1950s: the only pieces that survived were the textile furnishings, which had previously been taken to the Civic Museum of Palazzo Madama.
