Fetta di Polenta (Slice of Polenta)

Designed by Alessandro Antonelli, this iconic building on the corner of Corso San Maurizio is named Casa Scaccabarozzi, but Torinese affectionately call it Fetta di Polenta.


Lavazza Museum

A must for coffee lovers is the Lavazza Museum on Via Bologna 32 inside the  Nuvola (Cloud). Here you can immerse yourself in the Lavazza universe through a multisensory journey.


Luigi Einaudi Campus

Where Italgas once stood, there is now the Luigi Einaudi Campus. Did you know that it was designed by British architect Norman Foster and was listed by CNN as one of the ten most spectacular university buildings in the world?


Manifattura Tabacchi

The ex-Tobacco Factory is a historic building on Corso Regio Parco. For more than two centuries it housed the production of cigars, cigarettes and pipe shavings. Today it is home to some offices of the University of Torino.

Monumental Cemetery

Art and history are everywhere in Torino, including at the cemetery. With its 12 kilometers of arcades, the Monumentale is home to many historic and artistic tombs.


Piazzetta Santa Giulia

Behind the church of Santa Giulia, the symbol of Vanchiglia, commissioned by Marquise Giulia Falletti di Barolo, is Piazzetta Santa Giulia, a place where the local market and the movida (nightlife) coexist.


Pietro Colletta Park

Pietro Colletta Park was born from the recovery of an abandoned area. Bordering Barriera di Milano, the park is an ideal destination for runners, families and nature lovers.


Basilica di Maria Ausiliatrice (Basilica of Mary Help of Christians)

A little gem located in the heart of Aurora is the Valdocco district where two symbolic places of Torinese spirituality stand: the Don Bosco Museum House and the Basilica di Maria Ausiliatrice.


Cuneo con frecce (Cuneo with Arrows)

Arnaldo Pomodoro's work "Cuneo with Arrows" is located at the entrance to Smat. Fun fact: It is positioned on the vertical of the Molassi canal that carried water from the Dora to a series of factories along its course. 


Torino's districts don't end there: each month an article and carousel chronicling the city and its must-see stops.
