In this particular summer, if on the one hand the city is half empty due to the departure of the Turinese for the summer holidays, on the other hand a good part of them have already returned or will not leave at all. So the day of August, which this year falls on a Saturday, is an excellent opportunity to spend a few hours in the city, discovering museums and exhibitions, or to take advantage of a trip out of town. And given the canicular temperatures, perhaps towards the mountains, where the events organized by the various administrations and by the Pro Loco in the hottest months, for tourists and residents, never fail.
Music and activities … even at the castle
Theatrical performances and appointments with music at the Reggia di Venaria; Treasure hunt for families at Miradolo Castle. Ferragosto concert instead, at the San Silvestro park in Chieri while the Evergreen Fest continues and ends at the Parco della Tesoriera in Turin. Music and events also at Valentino, in the large lawn, with Green Dot.
Art, museums and exhibitions
In the city the August 15th can be spent in the name of art: the Civic Museums, the Museum of the Risorgimento are open, as well as the Cinema Museum where the Cinemaddosso exhibition continues. The panoramic lift is also open on the day of August 15th at the Mole. In addition, entering Palazzo Madama on August 15th costs only 1 euro where you can visit “Precious Silver” and a dedicated guided tour is scheduled for Ferragosto. And it also costs 1 euro to visit the Museum of Oriental Art where on the 15th there is a guided tour of the China and Japan galleries. In mid-August, for a panoramic tour with a special view of the city, the Sassi-Superga tramway also remains in operation.
