Turin

Among the most famous monuments of Turin we have to mention the nineteenth-century Mole Antonelliana, the undisputed symbol of the city hosting the National Museum of Cinema (the largest in Europe), the Palazzo Reale (ancient home of the Dukes and later of Kings who ruled the city), the Renaissance Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista of the fifteenth century (famous for the Holy Shroud), the Egyptian Museum (the second biggest in the world after Cairo), the Savoy Gallery (significant collection of paintings), Palazzo Carignano (designed by Guarini, home of the first Italian Parliament) and the imposing Palazzo Madama. The latter in particular deserves attention since it is located in the real geographic and metaphorical heart of the city; its oldest parts date back even to Roman times (two of its 4 towers, now incorporated in the facade). It was transformed into a castle in medieval times by the addition of two more towers and renewed several times, particularly at the beginning of the eighteenth century when it was equipped with a new facade by Filippo Juvarra. A feature of Turin are the arcades that run for more than 18 km.

An important speech deserves the neighborhood of Cit Turin for the many Art Nouveau buildings, which make Turin, along with Milan, the Italian capital of this style.

Rivoli

The Castle of Rivoli (unfinished Savoy palace designed by Juvarra) houses the Museum of Contemporary Art which, since 1984, has realized several exhibitions every year, all on the most recent forms of contemporary visual arts or individual authors. Also since 1984, there is the Permanent Collection, which is increased through acquisitions, donations and even long-term loans. The works of the Collection are exhibited in rotation. The castle is also equipped with a rich specialized library which, among other things, is fed by an international network of trade of exhibition catalogs with similar institutions. The museum is set on the restoration and renovation of space designed by architect Andrea Bruno. The castle is situated in a dominant position and is the easternmost emergency of greater cord of Hill of Rivoli.

Settimo Torinese

La torre è l’ultimo elemento superstite dell’antico castello signorile, gravemente danneggiato e forse distrutto durante le guerre franco-asburgiche del sedicesimo secolo. Il castello e la torre ancora in piedi furono costruiti sul sito di un precedente fortilizio – presumibilmente tra la fine del Trecento e l’inizio del Quattrocento – di cui non si conservano tracce se non nelle fonti d’archivio.

The tower is the last surviving element of the ancient noble castle, badly damaged and perhaps destroyed during the Franco-Habsburg wars of the sixteenth century. The castle and the tower still standing were built on the site of a former fort - presumably from the late fourteenth and early fifteenth century – without any record but in the archive sources. The Carnival of Settimo is one of the most significant of Piedmont, with its typical masks and its traditional customs. A carnival rich in tradition and folklore, people and customs typical of Settimo past, which for some years is experiencing a revival thanks to the work of the Pro Loco and volunteers of historic group of Centro Studi Settimesi. Among the features of the Carnival need to highlight the typical Settimo characters, the Grand Priore and the Bela Lavandera, in addition to traditional and original "Process dla Veja", recovered thanks to the Centro Studi Settimesi. Moreover the floats parade that has regained the interest of a wide audience.
