This work covers the destiny of the Baroque, from the rigorous design of Italy's first capital city to the rediscovery of a strategic resource for the future of Turin. In the heart of the contemporary city, the Baroque still acts as the background against which new interventions stand out, the fabric on which new designs for the public spaces are laid, the living body on which numerous restorations are compared. Architectrue conceived on a European scale investigates ways for transporting into the future a legacy that is crucial for the city's urban identity.The series "Contemporary Architecture in Turin" reconstructs the complex topography of places, buildings, architects, techniques and styles in Turin throughout the twentieth century. It is a collection of small histories that helps identify future scenarios for a city that has unobtrusively embraced the twenty-first century.
