Stupinigi Castle is a country residence of monks of the Savoy dynasty, located in the suburb of the same name, not far from Turin. Along with other residences of the House of Savoy, it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997.

During the Middle Ages, the Marquises of the Pallavicino family owned the hunting grounds in Stupinigi, the property of the younger branch of the Savoy dynasty. Victor Amadeus II decided to build a small hunting lodge in Stupinigi, and commissioned Filippo Juvarre to do this. The construction of the building began in 1729 and continued almost until the end of the century. The interior decoration of the chambers is the work of Venetian craftsmen.

In the 19th century, the castle was often used by monks. Here they held entertainment and wedding parties. The castle currently houses the Museum of Decorative and Applied Arts.
