TORINO NOIR | Turin Cathedral Bell Tower exclusively opened for Somewhere Tour, 200 steps: we reach the top and the view is stunning. The enlighted Mole, Palazzo Madama standing out in all its majesty, the city lights. The tour guide starts talking and we immediately travel back to a past Turin, scourged by the plague, crime stories and exorcism, a Noir past with red blood shades. The exclusive openings continue to the Town Hall courtyard and to a peculiar Church where the ones condemned to death used to spend the last moments of their lives.
