Certosa Reale of Collegno, arcades
Turin

The monumental complex of the Certosa Reale of Collegno date back to 17th century.

After having been a Carthusian monastery, in 19th century it became the Royal Insane Asylum, then psychiatric hospital until the suppression of such hospitals in whole Italy.

Today the complex is part of a big green public park.

During the 1920s one of the patients of the psychiatric hospital was the "forgetful man from Collegno", whose identity has never conclusively determined (Bruneri or Canella?). Recently a tv fiction has broadcast about that case: most of the scenes have been shot between these old walls.

More About Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
