A. The Lavazza business center
by Rosa Tamborrino
The Lavazza business centerLa Nuvola), inaugurated in 2018 and designed by Cino Zucchi, has redesigned a relevant part of the Aurora neighbourhood, combining the construction of a new complex and the recovery of significant industrial pre-existences. The operation, which is framed in a social and urban context dense with tensions and potential, has triggered dynamics of urban regeneration and makes it possible to imagine new spaces and activities for the historic industrial periphery. The visit will be an opportunity to know different aspects of the intervention and to discuss the open challenges of urban regeneration.
Meeting point:

Lavazza, via Bologna 32

B. Looks on Aurora 1. The Poli for the regeneration of the suburbs
by Cristiana Rossignolo
Aurora is a very complex neighbourhood of Turin, but also rich in human capital capable of triggering small tailor-made urban tailor-made, promoted by the AutoraLab project of the Politecnico di The itinerary aims to show some interesting experiences of the rich local associative tissue, activated in recent years to respond to the needs of those who live in the neighbourhood, and who have intercepted the resources of the European project UIA-Tonite.

C. Looks on Aurora 2. Full and empty, between adaptability and flexibility
by Francesca Bragaglia
Aurora is historically one of the neighbourhoods where twentieth-century industry has most shaped the area. Today several urban voids are testimony to that industrial legacy that, unlike other areas of the city, has not yet found its complete reconversion. The AuroraLab project of the Politecnico di has wondered about the ways of adaptive reuse of such spaces, which will certainly impact the face of the Aurora neighbourhoods in the coming years, and the itinerary intends to show the places of the crucial choices yet to be made

E. The Chapel of the Holy Shroud
by Marina Feroggio and Cristina Cuneo

An example of the adaptability of an architecture crucial to understanding the architectural culture from which it sprang. The tour (cost €13 per person, 6 to 6:45 p.m.) will be led by arch.

F. An adaptive and assertive episcopal complex
by Andrea Longhi
The area below the cathedral and the Royal Palace preserves the stratification of the early Christian and medieval episcopal complex, adjacent to the Roman theater and razed in 1492 to make way for the roveresco building site. The itinerary includes a visit to the archaeological excavations in the lower church of the cathedral (now the Diocesan Museum of Turin: reduced admission €7 per person) and a reading of the adjacent urban spaces.
Meeting point:

piazza San Giovanni, ingresso Museo Diocesano

G. Religious heritage in the historic center of Turin: flexibility and adaptations
by Giulia De Lucia and Francesco Novelli
The dense concentration of religious buildings in the city center is the reason for the beginning, in the last decade, of an adaptive approach to the use of some churches, and the development of different strategies of valorization and reuse of religious heritage, otherwise destined to underutilization phenomena. The itinerary will touch some of the main churches in the historic center of Turin (Santa Chiara, Santi Martiri and others) involved in interventions and investments for adaptive activities to more flexible and varied uses, sensitive to the urban social context.
Meeting point:

via Garibaldi angolo via XX Settembre (chiesa della Trinità)

H. Lingotto, Agnelli Art Gallery and Pista 500 
by Filippo De Pieri
The Lingotto building and the areas adjacent to it represent a formidable observatory on the crises, transformations and imaginaries of the future that have touched Turin over the past half-century. Decommissioned in 1982, the Fiat industrial complex has been the subject of a complex and layered regeneration program over time. Projects and investments have been focused on the areas near it on several occasions, with a symbolic culmination in the interventions implemented for the 2006 Winter Olympics. Nowhere is it possible to better understand this extraordinary history (even in its contradictions) than from the track on the roof of the building, former symbol of Fordist Turin and recently the subject of a landscaping intervention. The tour (8 Euro per person) includes a guided visit to the Agnelli Art Gallery and the spaces of the track
AISU congress registered attendees will benefit from reduced individual admission to the Agnelli Art Gallery and the Runway (€10) for the duration of the congress.
