Overview

Step into industrial Turin - and discover great art, exciting architecture, and industrial treasures!

Follow your knowledgeable guide to Agnelli's Art Gallery – located at top of the Lingotto factory. Built between 1916 and 1923, the Lingotto was once the world's largest car factory (seat of FIAT), and a revolutionary architectural feat. Transformed into an exciting public space by Renzo Piano, the Scrigno (jewelry box), a structure which seems to float atop the building, marks the final step of the 20 year long restructuring process. The Scrigno is home to the Agnelli Museum, which displays an extraordinary collection of artworks dating from the 18th to the 20th century and ranging from the Venice of Canaletto and the Dresden of Bellotto to a group, unique in Italy, of seven masterpieces by Matisse, as well as works by Manet, Renoir, and Picasso.

Your tour continues with a bus ride during which you'll see the first FIAT factory, the Olympic Stadium and the attached architectural complex.
