Italy - Turin - Stupinigi Interior 16_DSC4133

A(nother) photo of the amazing Baroque interior of the Stupinigi Palace on the outskirts of Turin.

My 8mm Samyang fisheye lens is perfect for a subject such as the central space of the Stupinigi Palace. For anyone interested in trying out a fisheye at about £200 the quality is impressive and it’s small and light enough that I carry it everywhere.

From Wikipedia : "The Palazzina di caccia of Stupinigi (Italian: "The hunting residence of Stupinigi") is one of the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy in northern Italy, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. Built as a royal hunting lodge in the early 18th century, it is located in Stupinigi, a suburb of the town of Nichelino, 10 km (6 mi) southwest of Turin…….

The original purpose of the hunting lodge is symbolized by the bronze stag perched at the apex of the stepped roof of its central dome, and the hounds’ heads that decorate the vases on the roofline. The building has a saltire plan: four angled wings project from the oval-shaped main hall.

The extensions resulted in separate pavilions linked by long angled galleries and a long octagonal forecourt enclosed by wings, extended forwards in two further entrance courts."
