Gun rack in Horn "Black Forest"
Height 150 cm, width 90 cm
Provenance: Castello di Casotto, Royal Residence
From monastery to hunting residence.
A former Carthusian monastery, it was bought by the Savoys and transformed into a hunting residence by Charles Albert according to a project that succeeded in masterfully combining the simplicity of an ancient convent with the monumental style appropriate to a Savoy residence.
However, the Charterhouse was never used as a place of entertainment, but was reserved for the private use of Victor Emmanuel II, the hunter-king, who organised his great hunting expeditions there, and of Princess Marie-Clotilde, who stayed there in summer.
Fragments of court life are still present in the rooms, in the original furnishings and in the king's kitchens.
