The experience in brief

 

The loss of its status as the Italian capital in 1864 prompted Turin to reflect on its own identity, seeking new avenues for its urban, industrial and social development. During this period, the city witnessed exhibitions held along the banks of the River Po. Here, the first espresso coffee machine made its debut in 1884, going on to become a key element in the vibrancy of Turin life during the 1800s and 1900s.

AIMS

– Explore the urban development of Turin, from the beginnings of the Aurora district to the modern day.

– Create greater awareness of the connection between city planning, art and industrial development.

– Encourage a focus on the city’s industrial history and its major technical and technological triumphs.

– Promote debate and discussion among students, reflecting together on the topics of art and politics throughout the different stages of the guided tour.

– Reflect on the role of coffee as a drink and the café as a meeting point, and their role as a social unifier.
