There is a legend that exactly two triangles converge in Turino. One triangle – “White magic” (Turino – San Francisko – London) and the second – “Black magic” (Turino – Prague – Lyon). No one knows how, by whom and why such boundaries were established, but it seems that there are two cities: one that we see in daylight with all its sights and small old streets, and the second city that is hidden from uninitiated passers-by under cover of night.
In a place, that is between good and evil, there are three relics of the Christian world: the shroud of Jesus, fragments of the cross on which he was crucified, and the Holy Grail. Turino is also located 666 km from Rome, the capital of Catholicism. Fourty fifth parallel passes through the city, which means that the distance to Turin from the equator and the north pole is the same. And in addition, the cities: Turino, Burgallo and La Spezia form a triangle with a difference in the corners of 3.14 degrees – the magic number of the builders of the pyramids (supposedly Turin could have been founded by the Egyptians).
Forces of good and evil
The center of White magic in Turino is Piazza Castello, which hosts celebrations, concerts and other events. It is believed that the boundary of power passes between the statues of Castore and Polluce.
The center of Black magic is Piazza Statuto. They say that even the gates of hell are there. Previously, this place was located outside the gates of the city and the bodies of the dead were dumped there for not having a cemetery. Also, on this square there is a fountain of Frejus with an angel on the top, which in fact is the fallen angel Lucifer.
Usually, it is from this square that the tour of this mysterious city begins.
Walking around the city you can notice the various signs of the Freemasons and the places seen in Dan Brown’s book “The Da Vinci Code”. The statues of the city alone know its secrets. Although they cannot pronounce words, but they can indicate where we should go. Each statue points to another statue. Following these movements of hands and glances, you will find yourself in front of the statue of the Faith of the Gran Madre di Dio temple, whith the Holy Grail in its hand, and its eye is directed to the place where it is hidden. Maybe you will be the one to find it?
Turin is not only the center of convergence of good and evil, but also the capital of chocolate. The Swiss were not the first to produce the most delicious chocolate in the world. Since 1678, when royal decree allowed and regulated the production of chocolate not only domestically, but beyond its borders. Chocolate craftsmen created desserts that delight connoisseurs all over the world. Among the world famous brands we can find the following: Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, Kinder Chocolate, Tic Tac, Martini drinks, etc. Also Turino became the first city to start producing liquid chocolate, i.e. cocoa. In addition, it was in Turino where sweets were invented from chocolate, sugar with the addition of nuts — ganduiotto. Moreover there still exists a very tasty ice cream of the “Grom” brand, where you will certainly find your taste.
