  • In the "salotto di Torino", as they call the people of Turin Piazza San Carlo, is a rampant Bull of bronze which is tied to a legend from Turin. The effigy, symbol and coat of arms, was placed in the square dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo in 1930 and has since become the object of attention and superstitions. At the expense of, if I may say so, the bronze bull testicles. In fact, legend has it that trample image attributes taurine bring much luck. There is a similar to Milan's Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II was chosen also to realize a bull to represent Turin. Shortly after the completion of work spread the rumor that that bull, and especially her big attributes, brings good fortune. For men looking for a bit of luck it became customary to do some laps keeping the heel of the shoe well staked on the attributes of the animal. For women, however, it was said that the body of the bull he had powers related to fertility. It is not uncommon to see throngs of Japanese or Chinese tourists who make the experiment clearly informed by "guide".
