The Palazzo Chiablese is a section of the Royal Palace of Turin, in Northwest Italy. It was the residence of the Duke of Chablais first and then of Carlo Felice, King of Sardinia, and Ferdinando, Duke of Genoa. It is used for press conferences, cultural events, concerts. The title Duke of Chablain (Italian: Duca di Chiablese, French: duc de Chablais) was a subsidiary title of the Duke of Savoy and later the King of Sardinia, both of the House of Savoy. The title is named after the province of Chablais, whose capital was Thonon-les-Bains.
Located in Piazza San Gionanni, the Palazzo Chiablese is part of the Royal Palace of Turin which was a residence of the Kings of Sardinia-Piedmont. As an extension of the palace, it was the home of Maurice of Savoy and his wife Luisa Christina of Savoy before they moved to the Vigna di Madama outside the capital. It was then used as offices by the court. From 1753, it served as the residence of Benedetto of Savoy, son of Charles Emmanuel III and Elisabeth Therese of Lorraine it was named after his courtesy title of Duke of Chablais.
After the death of Chablais it was the home of his wife Maria Anna of Savoy who willed it to her brother Charles Felix, Duke of Genoa who lived there with his wife Princess Maria Christina of Naples and Sicily. The building was the seat of the provisional government of France during the Napoleonic occupation, it was the home of Camillo Borghese and his wife Pauline Bonaparte.
A century later the palace was bombed during the World War II, which caused considerable damage and many furnishings and decorative elements were lost. Later on the palace was converted to provide the dormitories, kitchens and facilities for the pupils of the Istituto Nazinale per le Figlie dei Militari Italiani (National Institute for Italian Soldiers‘ Daughters) which was installed there a century later. Until 1995 it was home to the city‘s cinema archive when it became the home of the Sovrintendenza per I Beni Ambientali e Architettonici e Archeologici – The „General Directorate for the scenery, fine arts, archtecture and contemporary art, it is closed to the public except on specual occasions.
