Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Piedmont  /  Province of Turin  /  Stupinigi
Stupinigi, with some 200 inhabitants, is today a frazione of the commune of Nichelino, in the province of Turin (Piedmont, north-west Italy). It borders on the communes Candiolo and Orbassano on the southwestern outskirts of Turin, about 10km from the centre of the city. Before 1869 it formed part of the commune of Vinovo.Stupinigi is known for the eighteenth-century Palazzina di Stupinigi, one of the historical Residences of the Royal House of Savoy, for the medieval Castelvecchio di Stupinigi, and for the associated park and nature reserve, the Parco Naturale di Stupinigi.History and landmarksHistorically Stupinigi centres on the Castelvecchio: a medieval castle which belonged to the Savoia Acaja, a branch of the House of Savoy who until 1416 were Signori of Piedmont—a much smaller territory than the present-day region—and briefly Princes of Achaia. In 1439 the castle was purchased by the Marchevnvse Orlando Pallavicino (“il Magnifico”); in 1563 it passed to the Duke of Savoy, Emanuele Filiberto, when the capital of the Duchy was transferred from Chambéry to Turin. Subsequently Emanuele Filiberto granted Stupinigi to the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus.
