Sala di Diana, or Diana's Hall, is the most magnificent hall in the palace and was clearly used for hosting grand banquets. The decorations are so elaborate that you don't even know where to start looking. The ceiling is decorated with square stuccoes and frescoes representing the Gods of Olympus. In the middle you can see ten portraits of the Dukes of Savoy on horseback, while lower you can see the same number of canvases dedicated to hunting deer, hare, bear, fox, and boar. The same man also created the frescoes: he was a Flemish painter named Jan Miel who worked in Turin.
