Chieri is a town and comune in the province of Turin, Piedmont (Italy), located about 11km southeast of Turin, 15km by rail and 13km by road. It borders the following municipalities: Baldissero Torinese, Pavarolo, Montaldo Torinese, Pino Torinese, Arignano, Andezeno, Pecetto Torinese, Riva presso Chieri, Cambiano, Santena, Poirino.HistoryPre-RomanBetween the Neolithic and the Iron Age, the original inhabitants of this part of the Italian peninsula were the Liguri people. The Liguri living in this area of the Po river plain belonged specifically to the Taurini tribe, whose capital was the city of Taurasia (Torino), after whom that city is also named.The location of Chieri is within the Taurini tribe's territory, in the belt of hills which surround Torino. The original settlement was most likely founded by them, being sited on a prominent hill (on which the church of San Giorgio currently stands) and which grew to be the geographical focus of the city centre. Its original name would have been Karreum or a variant thereof e.g. Karreo/Karrea/Carrea: this is based on the root kar, which possibly means "stone", reflecting the typical Ligurian settlement layout of a stone edifice at the centre of a grouping of other habitations within a village, which would have likely been the original layout of Chieri.
