Search by Type Turin

Originally it was a small village of Taurini people, around 2,000 years ago. Then it was a Roman city, chosen for its strategic position, both from a military point of view and as a stop along the way for travelers.
After the fall of the Roman empire, the city suffered from a long period of decadence, due also to the passage of destructive Barbarian hordes.
Then came the era of the Savoys.

Only with Emanuele Filiberto did Turin recover its importance. This Savoy duke gained fame as a courageous leader in Flanders, particularly in the Battle of San Quintino. With the Treaty of Cateau Cambrésis he got back his Italian property -- which had been lost by his father, Carlo II, known as the Good King -- and took the historic decision to make Turin the capital of the Duchy.
Since then the city, still limited inside by Roman walls, started to grow and become important. It was the capital for three centuries and the first capital of Italy for almost four years.

It lies at the foot of a vast hilly area, and its entire length is crossed by the Po, the longest river in Italy. On the western horizon is a long and imposing mountain chain. The city has maintained its charm, seasoned with history, architectural beauty and culture.
Its boulevards lined with trees are kilometers long, and its porticoes, its characteristic locales and shops all contribute to its present day atmosphere.
From the literary salons to the great economic growth. Big industry, starting with FIAT, the era of technological conquests, urban planning and the sprouting of new quarters.

An aerial view shows Turin as a large chessboard with streets and boulevards forming perfect squares. The Mole Antonelliana, the emblem of the city, dominates it from 167 meters high. On its streets there are 18 kilometers of porticoes that allow you to walk places even when its raining, from Piazza Castello to the banks of the Po. Or from the opposite side, to the Cittadella, passing by the elegant Piazza San Carlo.
