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.

Historic street with emblematic outlets and most importantly major monumental edifices on either end. What recontextualises most italian cities lacking that blend. Neither very long nor slack at any part, Piazza Castello and San Carlo to be explored too. Turinese architecture and sequential fusion with the modernis 30's. Outlets of Hermes caliber and status in a crisp and clean historic setting.

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.

One of the most important streets in the historical center of Turin, Via Roma runs through the beautiful Piazza San Carlo, connects the Piazza Castello with the station at Porta Nuova and is lined with lots of expensive clothing boutiques. We spent some good time wandering up and down the street and did some "window shopping" meanwhile.

A very Grand street for shopping. A lot of expensive shops here. Spotlessly clean.
Perhaps one of the most characterful shopping streets in Europe.

Very nice street, where you walk in a kind of gallery. The nice brands for clothes and accessories are present.
Also the restaurants at the squares are very good and do have a terrasse to sit outside

Via Roma is one of the most important streets in the center of Turin. It connects Piazza Castello in the center to the Porta Nuova train station. It is a must for shoppers who are looking for prestigious brands, but there are also other boutiques with very good bargains. In other words there you will find something which is just right for everyone's pocket. I found Via Roma quite attractive and we used to walk through it practically every day on our way to the center and back, during our visit to Turin in July of last year.

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.
