Monuments

The traces of the past, the symbols of power, the interpretations of the very many faces of Turin and its territory appear everywhere...

They materialise in impressive equestrian statues, columns, obelisks and spectacular arches designed by the most famous architects and contemporary artists. In the city, one of the most recognisable monuments of the city in Piazza San Carlo is the Caval'd Brons, the statue dedicated to Emanuele Filiberto, together with that of Carlo Alberto in Piazza Carlo Alberto, and that of Conte Verde, Amedeo VI, in Piazza Palazzo di Città. There is also to be remembered the curious National Monument to the Carabiniere in the Giardini Reali Bassi park, and the statue of Vittorio Emanuele II at the crossroads between Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and Corso Galileo Ferraris.


The marble statues representing the Rivers Po and Dora in Piazza CLN celebrate the city of waters while the Olympic Arch is the most visible and futuristic legacy of the 2006 Winter Olympics. The tour of the monuments continues also outside the city: from the Roman Amphitheatre of Susa and on to Sestriere where, apart from the Napoleonic Obelisk commemorating the centenary of the national highway joining Piedmont with the Haute-Savoie (Upper Savoy), there is the impressive Albero della Vita by Mario Ceroli: a sculpture 13.5m tall consisting of some 2000 triangular sheets of glass. At the Rotonda Antonelliana of Castellamonte, in Canavese, there rises the Arco di Pomodoro, while at Ivrea there can still be seen the remains of the ancient Roman town Eporedia.
