Turin: from Baroque to contemporary architecture, from Brownfields to Greenfields. Discover the misknown italian city with us!We are three young women architects, PhD in history of architecture, with experience in critics, communication and journalism of architecture. Our passion is to guide people around our city. Generally known as the Italian one company town, about twenty years ago Turin started a process of deep change, looking for a new urban identity. With its huge transformation, the city standing at the foot of the Alps has become a laboratory-city for the reconversion of the post-industrial heritage. The directions of change are multiple and they are leaving important signs in its urban fabric. Besides its industrial history, Torino can surprise with its Baroque architecture, that has brought the city to the forefront of international popularity among architects, and with some masterpieces of the Italian modern architecture, such as the works by Pier Luigi Nervi and Carlo Mollino.
