Turin, magic and mysteries in black and white

Sacred, profane and legends intertwine with the history of the city and get lost in the mists of time. Shadows and light, positive or negative energies, historical and esoteric references place Turin at the center of the experts' attention, according to which it rises at the intersection of channels of energy that cross the surface of the planet: hence the narrations that they see the city as the theater of a struggle between positive and non-positive forces.

If we want to follow the directions of the city under the aegis of mystery, we must absolutely go to two "positive" places: the first is the Gran Madre church, beyond the Vittorio Emanuele bridge, followed by the Four Seasons Fountain. Concerning the church it is said that the place where it stands conserves the traces of a temple dedicated to the Egyptian goddess Isis, while one of the statues that precedes the church - the allegory of the Faith raising a chalice in the fist - would indicate the site where the Holy Grail, the cup of the Last Supper.

The fountain, on the other hand, is also called "Angelica fountain" and is interpreted as the "gateway to the infinite". And then here is the Mole Antonelliana, an icon of Turin and masterpiece by Alessandro Antonelli. Here too, the legend is intertwined with reality and is said to be a symbol - as well as the Piedmontese capital - also of positivity: in its reaching out to the sky, the Mole would radiate all the benefits coming from the subsoil on Turin. Another well-wishing place is Piazza Castello, to be precise the point where the Tritons fountain of the Royal Palace stands: this is, according to experts, the epicenter of the positive energy of the city. This is because the area where the palace stands marks the border between the "white city" and the "black" one. In particular, the gate of the palace with the two statues of the Dioscuri would indicate this border that separates the east from the west, that is the part of the darkness where in ancient Rome the dead were buried and crucified the condemned.

According to the experts, in fact, there are some places in Turin where the devil would have put his hand: Piazza Statuto, first of all, placed in the west - esoterically towards the darkness - and extended on an area once occupied by a necropolis for a long time it was chosen for public executions. Legends and ghosts - believe it or not it is arbitrary - hover around other sites of the city like Villa Tesoriera - whose park is called "the devil" -, Falletti Palace and Piazza Carlina.
