Via Roma is an important thoroughfare linking Porta Nuova railway station and Piazza Castello. It is the main shopping street of Turin with a range of high end stores. The original section is of modernist 1930's style and was created by architect Marcello Piacentini. It is an impressive street and was almost deserted during my visit in July 2020.

What does the via Roma in Turin have in common with the via Concelazione, a street running from San Pietro to the Tiber. They have the same architect and a similar fate. The architect's name is Marcello Piacentini. Mussolini entrusted him with not only these, but also other important projects in Italy - the famous EUR quarter for the world's fair in Rome or the Palace of justice in Milan. To pave via Roma Piacentini took out an entire block, as he did in Rome during the construction of the via Conciliazione. Whether it was necessary to do this is a debatable question. Supporters of preserving authenticity say no. However, in this case, we would not have a lot of things in the world - the Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, the Boulevard Andrassy in Budapest, the Victorian center of London, etc. What is done is done. Now via Roma is an exhibition street in Turin, like via del Corso in Rome. Expensive restaurants, boutiques, and the public that came out to show themselves and look at others. And only tourists like us spoil this atmosphere of solemnity and high style, scurrying from the station to the Piazza San Carlo. What to do? Tourists choose the shortest route from point A to point B. Via via Roma.

If you want to spend your money in expensive shops then this is the place for you. A street of expensive shops. Nice area with smooth pavements under arcades and beggars at the expensive doorways. An interesting contrast.
