    An iconic place surrounded by mystery and legends

    • Cena

    The Devil's Door (Portone del Diavolo) is a mysterious landmark dating back to 1850. Located on Via XX Settembre in Turin, it's a beautiful door with carvings of flowers and animals, with a knocker that depicts a demon with 2 snakes in its jaws. 

    This sparked popular imagination and inspired myths and legends, from a ghost who supposedly haunts the building to skeletons hidden in the walls. The Devil's Door is part of a building that served as a tarots factory (it's now  Banca Nazionale del Lavoro).

    Villaggio Leumann is a historic neighbourhood in Collegno, about 16 km east of Turin. It's a great place to step back in time, as the village has Liberty-style architecture, a vintage train station, and a church with different architectural styles. 

    Villaggio Leumann was built between the late 19th and early 20th centuries by a Swiss entrepreneur, Napoleon Leumann. The picturesque buildings are still inhabited, so it feels you're inside a living museum.

    Fetta di Polenta

    A bizarre building by Alessandro Antonelli

    Fetta di Polenta is a yellow and triangular structure in Turin's Vanchiglia district. Formally known as Casa Scaccabarozzi, it's the work of  Alessandro Antonelli, who also designed the Mole Antonelliana in the 1860s.

    You can easily spot Fetta di Polenta, thanks to its incredibly narrow shape – the front is over 5 metres wide, but the back is just 54 cm wide. For years it was occupied by Antonelli and his wife Francesca Scaccabarozzi, which gave the building its official name.

    Fontana Angelica (Angelic Fountain) is a historic monument and meeting point on the northern edge of Piazza Solferino. It was built in 1929 to honour the will of the minister Bajnotti, who left 150,000 lira to construct a monument to his parents. Art lovers can admire Giovanni Riva's beautiful sculptures, which represent the 4 seasons. 

    Those interested in Masonic symbolism can appreciate the figures’ obscurer significance. The females represent the virtue and vice of love, while the males guard the Pillars of Hercules, watching over the way to knowledge, depicted by the water flowing from their wineskins. From a certain distance, you'll notice the sculptures form a perfect rectangle.

    The 3 covered passages of Turin are among the city's most iconic features, dating back between the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The glass-covered walkways allow people to move between the centre’s buildings during bad weather, housing plenty of shops, cafes and cinemas.

A little further, towards Piazza Castello, is Galleria Subalpina, which is famous for its massive glass roof. Walk for about 1 km towards Porta Palazzo to get to Galleria Umberto I, where you can grab a bite at Caffè della Basilica.
