Parco Dora Street Art is an immersive tour of the murals that adorn the walls of this post-industrial area.
The Parco Dora Street Art Tour begins at the Sacro Volto church and proceeds through the 400,000 square meters of parkland, most of which has been restored since the closure of the steelworks which used to operate here. We pass through where there were Fiat and Michelin factories, industrial facilities which also produced the metalwork of the Mole Antonelliana, Turin’s most recognizable landmark. This is a constantly-evolving street art gallery, where both local and international artists exhibit their work. The park also contains a skate ramp, a basketball court and playgrounds, meaning there’s often a live audience for the artists as they work.
We end this tour in Borgata Tesso, a working class neighborhood built in 1877 that hosts an augmented-realty project, MAU. We’ll also visit Spina 3, a new site of redevelopment in the neighborhood, another post-industrial site with further murals to admire, including murals linked to the MAU project.
