Located in the historic center of the city, this Renaissance Revival-style building was completed in 1874. It is reminiscent of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The design is the same, although the Milan Galleria is better known and is more ambitious. Named after the bank that financed its creation, this is an attractive shopping area, with lots of plants, flowers and charming balconies. The stylish use of marble, glass and iron makes for a classical, late 19th century building. In addition to shops, you will also find Turin's oldest movie theater, an elegant restaurant and a classical cafe. Around Christmas, the entire Galleria is decorated with festive lights. It is quite a sight.

After walking through the Galleria several times we spotted a plaque commemorating Friedrich Nietzsche on an outer wall. Nietzsche lived in two rooms on the second floor, diagonally across from the Cinema Romano. This was his residence at the time he was declared mad. Amazing discovery, and the galleria is worthy of a visit simply for the ornate decoration and location.

Not much to be said. It is an utterly beautiful and for me personally, magical place in a way. A testament to the Italian knowledge of what beauty is.

Galleria Subalpina designed by Pietro Carrera is an elegant arcade with iron and glass roof in 1873 which opened 30th September 1874. The structure is a typical nineteenth-century model of urban shopping area inspired by the typical Parisian passages and intended for the middle-class entertainment. It owes its name to the Industrial Bank Subalpina who assumed the burden of the building. The gallery, located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto, features decorative elements in both Baroque and Renaissance style, the work of sculptor Pietro Rubino. Length of the visit is about 15 minutes.

The galleria is a little run down, there is nowhere to sit, not much to see, one wonders whether the upper floors are still functioning. It was not easy to find and not sure it is worth paying a visit.

Do not miss this little beautiful gallery, designed by Pietro Carrera in 1873. It is located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto and is characterised by a wide and luminous fifty-meter long saloon, fourteen wide, enriched by a remarkable eclectic decorative apparatus that combines elements in Renaissance and Baroque style.
