Good to know

Turin is the Metropolitan City capital of the Piedmont region, the fourth Italian city by population after Rome, Milan and Naples and third overall economic productivity of the country. First capital of the Kingdom of Italy (1861-1865), is one of the major academic, artistic, tourist, cultural and scientific cities of the State, as well as the fulcrum of Italian automotive industry, publishing center, banking, insurance, design and sport. Turin is in a plain bounded by Alpine valleys, the river Po accentuates the division between the hills and plain of the city. There are reports of early human settlements of Celtic-Ligurian origins (Taurini) from the third century BC. Julius Caesar established a military garrison in 58 BC, with the name of “Julia Taurinorum”, then, during the Gallic Wars, a real castle. With the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Turin came under the control of the Ostrogoths, Lombards and Franks of Charlemagne (773). After ups and downs, Turin was permanently incorporated in the possessions of the Savoy. The union with Sardinia lasted from 1713 to 1847, with Torino capital of the Kingdom of Sardinia. After the period of the annexation of Piedmont to France by Napoleon Bonaparte, Turin became the first capital of Italy. From the late nineteenth century, the city will qualify as industrial center of primary importance: in 1899 Giovanni Agnelli founded the FIAT. With the advent of fascism, are followed assaults and fights in the city, the best known of which is the "Massacre of Turin" (December 18, 1922) in which were killed eleven antifascists. Turin is among the cities decorated with gold medal as a "National Risorgimento Meritorious" and for its activities in the partisan struggle. After the Second World War, Turin was the symbol of the country's economic growth, attracting hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the South and the Veneto. Among the most famous monuments, the Mole Antonelliana (symbol of the city), which houses the National Museum of Cinema, the Royal Palace, the St. Jhon Baptist’s Cathedral (guardian of the Holy Shroud), the Egyptian Museum, the Savoy Gallery and numerous palaces. The avenues are a feature of Turin, as well as the interconnected arcades. Its surroundings are decorated with many Savoy residences, "World Heritage" by UNESCO: the Palace of Venaria Reale, the castles (Valentino, Agliè, Racconigi, Rivoli and Moncalieri) and the Small Stupinigi Palace. The city is also known for a long tradition of esoteric and occult
