"Torèt"


We must remember that the bull is a symbol of Turin. In piedmontese dialect "torèt" means "small bull". The torèt are little public fountains, typical of Turin, with a bull head from which drinking water comes out. The torèt date back to the beginning of the 20th century and are about 700 in the city.

The Mole Antonelliana, the Alps, the sky


The Mole Antonelliana, 167m high, is the symbol of the city of Turin. It is named for the architect, Alessandro Antonelli, who designed it in 1863. Nowadays it houses the National Museum of Cinema. A glass-walled lift soars up to a viewing platform 85m up on the spire of the building: from there the panorama over the city and towards the Alps is wonderful.
