  • Visit painful and intense. A page of history that must be remembered. I pray all to go and visit, to allow the memory continues to exist and why not quit due to lack of funds and the disinterest of our politicians.

  • Very interesting visit and suggesting much the facts occurred in the years that we know really marginal! Excellent explanation of the Guide and touching finale. Visit highly recommended to everyone, and we hope that the city of Turin changes his mind on the future use of these places!

  • An interesting visit on prison life, its logistics and owners. The Guide has been thorough in his explanations but not heavy, we have touched on various aspects and it was very interesting. We also visited the bomb shelter, especially the location and explanation. Recommended!!

  • If you are visiting Turin, this place is worth your time, as you will see first hand how people were kept during the fascism in this prison. A little far away from the very city center, but it's worth the time
  • Ok
  • To visit absolutely! Part of history! Very interesting and very educative experience.

  • Great Museum, where one does not come to admire works of art, but to better understand the Italy, the resistance, the Nazi occupation, the period of the Red Brigades, the misery and the greatness of the human soul. The old prisons, in disuse for some years, can only be visited by guided tour. Are currently offered three locations: the classic style of the prisons (daily at 15, without reservation), the visit of the air-raid shelter and routes "between the sacred and the profane" (both only on weekends and by appointment only). In daily visits we speak of the architectural structure and the history of prisons, with special attention to the period of the war. Focused on then on the stories of prisoners, the victims of Nazism, partisan political prisoners who were sentenced to death in this place. We talk about those who rescued and helped those people, the monks and nuns. The path is very touching, even thanks to the ability of the guides. Practical info: you can't take pictures inside prisons. -You can find parking in front of the prison. -Length of visit: 2 hours-prisons are not heated, and then in the winter it is very cold.

  • A place to visit, dedicated to the memory. Escort Guide, all the way, well prepared. To dramatically improve the waiting room cramped and on warm days the limit of practicality.
