From the conversion of the Lingotto factory in the early 1980s to the 'sleepless nights' that enlivened the Winter Olympic Games in 2006, and up to the celebrations for 2011. A journey that embraces the delle Alpi Stadium, the Roman Quadrilateral, the Olympic Arch, demolition of ill-famed houses in Via Artom, the 'three centralities' of the Town Plan, the transformation of Piazza San Carlo into a pedestrian precinct, the voids created by the shutdown of the factories, and Turin's system of parks in search for the territorial images used by the city to represent itself.

A collection of small histories that helps identify future scenarios for a city that has unobtrusively embraced
