TURIN AS A CITY OF EXCELLENCE

written by Bridget Brackett

Ostuni città bianca

They say that Turin is placed at the top of a two triangles of white magic and one of black magic.

Piazza Statuto, traditionally identified as a center of black magic with Fontana Angelica where the angel is said to have represented the devil. Proceeding via Alfieri was possible to see the Devil's Door with wood marquetry in rich detail.

The clapper is definitely the main attraction depicting a devil with a grin searches passersby. The tour continued to the alchemical caves that are shelters, tunnels and passages that in the past have been the salvation for general, poor, noble and giving rise to many legends.

I heard a lot about Turin as a city of excellence for the esoteric and visiting for the second time I took the opportunity to visit the city full of mystery and magic. They say that Turin is placed at the top of a two triangles of white magic and one of black magic.

Piazza Statuto, is traditionally identified as a center of black magic with Fontana Angelica where the angel is said to have represented the devil. Proceeding via Alfieri was possible to see the Devil's Door with wood marquetry in rich detail.

The clapper is definitely the main attraction depicting a devil with a grin searches passersby. The tour continued to the caves that are alchemical shelters, tunnels and passages that in the past have been the salvation for general, poor, noble and which gave rise to many legends.

The magic comes from Piazza Castello positive instead of the cathedral which houses the Holy Shroud to the Mother of God, leading to the Mole that indicates the sky.

On the sides of the stairway entrance to the church of the Great Mother are two statues of Faith and Religion, where the eye of the statue of Faith indicate the hiding of the Holy Grail. I must be honest, the tour leaves the unknown suspended between myth and reality.
