The role of angels in art from the 16th to 19th centuries.
Compagnia di San Paolo invites the public to follow the itinerary from the “Command Area” when Turin was capital city onto contrada di Dora Grossa (now called via Garibaldi), once the main road axis of the formerly square city, featuring the Diocesan Museum (in the lower church of the Cathedral) and the churches of San Lorenzo, Santissima Trinità, Misericordia and Mercanti.
