Magic is what makes a place interesting, what allows us to travel back in time and dream of something that is considered distant from reality.
The Piedmontese capital has always been an attractive tourist and cultural center but there is something more to know. Turin is considered the city where legends of symbolic black and white magic reside.
History is prioritized in the extraordinary beauty of its buildings, the majesty of its parks and the fascinating atmosphere of this city which ensure that every visitor remains enchanted by their visit. There is, however, something else to discover, its compelling esoteric story.
It is said that the city of Turin is considered one of the vertices that make up the triangle of white magic (Turin, Lyon, Prague) and completes the triangle of black magic (Turin, London, San Francisco).
Tradition says that throughout the city there are strategically placed points of black magic that can be identified. A five-pointed star is located in Piazza Statute, where the monument to the fallen of the Frejus stands; the Rondò della Forca, where men were brought to the gallows until the second half of the nineteenth century, while the fountain of the four seasons in Piazza Solferino is reminiscent and representative of Masonic images. The legend of the devil’s door (located in Via XX Settembre, 40) tells of the devil locking a rebellious sorcerer inside the palace. The door knocker represents the devil himself who scrutinizes intrigued visitors who come to inspect the place.
However, if you are superstitious, do not fear. Turin is also known for being a city of white magic. Legends state that there is a point where the sun (River Po) and the moon (the Dora) converge in Turin. At the foot of the hill, the two statues at the entrance represent Faith and Religion. Showing the place where the Holy Grail was buried. Piazza Castello, in the Royal Palace, has gates that represent the point of separation between east, west, light and darkness. Finally, the Mole Antonelliana’s antenna emits a positive force.
This is definitely a tip for lovers of history, the intrepid and courageous who want to physically visit these places in order to deepen their knowledge of magic. The city also offers the opportunity to participate in group or indivially guided tours. What an excellent opportunity.
