Description

The large painting depicts Vittorio Amedeo, Duke of Savoy, then Vittorio Amedeo III, with his wife Maria Antonia Ferdinanda and the first five of the twelve children. It is a family portrait full of symbolic elements. At the center of the scene, the future king holds his eldest son by the hand, the heir to the throne Carlo Emanuele, while with the other he points to a small temple of peace and an obelisk where two cherubs hold the Savoy coat of arms and two olive branches. The gesture underlines Vittorio Amedeo's political line, aimed at maintaining peace. At the bottom right, some weapons and armor, having lost their warlike use, are accumulated in a disorderly fashion as toys for the princes. The one with the arrow in his hand, a male attribute, is the future Vittorio Emanuele I. The canvas can be dated between 1759 and 1760 and is located in the apartments on the second noble floor, where the couple lived after their wedding in 1750. The painter di corte Giuseppe Duprà, from Turin of Roman training, portrays the family of the future king of Sardinia in a sumptuous setting, focusing on the preciousness of the embroidered fabrics.
