Industrial Turin: Agnelli Art Gallery and Automobile Museum
Your tour begins with a one hour visit to Agnelli's Art Gallery – located at top of the Lingotto factory. Built between 1916 and 1923, the Lingotto was once the world's largest car factory (seat of FIAT), and a revolutionary architectural feat. Following the industrial decline, the Lingotto was transformed into an exciting public space by Renzo Piano. The Scrigno (“jewelry box”), a structure which seems to float atop the building, suspended above the rooftop test track, marks the final step of the 20 year long restructuring process. The Scrigno is home to the Agnelli Museum, which displays an extraordinary collection of 23 artworks dating from the 18th to the 20th century and ranging from the Venice of Canaletto and the Dresden of Bellotto to a group, unique in Italy, of seven masterpieces by Matisse, as well as works by Manet, Renoir and Picasso. In addition, the Scrigno always hosts interesting temporary exhibitions.
Your tour continues with a bus ride (1 hour) during which you'll see the first FIAT factory, the Olympic Stadium and the attached architectural complex.
You'll then arrive at the Automobile Museum, where your visit will continue inside (2 hours). Founded in 1960, it was reopened after a great makeover by the studio of the architect Cino Zucchi. The tour covers the history of the automobile, from its genesis to date, with a look towards the future. The Automobile Museum is home to over 200 cars representing some 80 brands. The museum boasts some of the first Italian cars, a 1914 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, and racing cars by Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, among many other exciting exhibits tracing the history of industrial development and design Made in Italy design.
