Magic Turin Evening Tour

Elegant Turin has a secret history shrouded in mystery and links to magic and the occult. Discover the dark side to the city during this guided tour by night that takes in sights and landmarks linked to the city’s twins “souls”, one associated with black magic and the other with white magic. Visit areas of the city considered cursed since Roman times, sinister architecture, and forbidding statues.

Very special exposition of original pieces of oriental art made with stone, wood, iron, broze, gold, paper, cloth and human bones (see pic). Pieces are organized by historical period and geographic area.

Four floors of a peculiar exposition of many pieces of art manufature from India, China, Japan, Himalaya and Islam area. A quick tour in oriental arts. Take tour time to read info and description about shown pieces and historic explanations. I suggest to get a guide or at least an electronic one.

I knew there were Samurai armour here which is why I visited. The museum is divided into 3 floors China and Japan Himilayas Islamic I was expecting to see some of the lovely Chinese brush paintings, maybe some kimonos etc But there was just lots of pots. It was extremely hot in the museum too. €10 was a lot of money for what was on display.
