  • Unfortunately still too little known in Turin. Very interesting Museum, showing the works of blessed Faà di Bruno, told by guides (volunteers) very knowledgeable. Wonderful Bell Tower, overlooking the city. Highly recommended!

  • I was really impressed by the expertise of the guide that introduced us to this small exhibition, organized in the salone Faà di Bruno, located in the complex which houses over to the schools of this character's multifaceted Museum committed in particular How to care for people most humble, serves. the Museum is open by appointment only and Sunday when I went to view it was not possible to see it, I think you need to go during the week to visit it, but "the Gospel according to Giotto" was a pleasant discovery. in the Hall there is the reproduction of frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, between 1303 and 1305, in scale 1:4. lacks only the ceiling of that lists only the two circles representing the Sun and moon with inside the Madonna and child with Christ blessing. the exhibition itself is nothing that to see it you remain maybe some delusi...ma then resumes immediately thanks to the guides that form small groups and accompany the visit in an absolutely perfect. We waited about 5 minutes and then they let them in-we were a dozen-and the first lady has provided information about the Scrovegni Chapel, on the family-powerful bankers padovani-and on the paintings of Giotto, absolutely innovative compared to the previous one. then begins the description of each image. There are about 40, starting at the third top log on the right side and then on the left side and so on for all 3, small wall included. in each box is narrated an episode of the life of Joachim and Anna, Mary's parents, Mary and Joseph to conclude with the life of Christ: you start with the first scene depicting Gioacchino left the temple as sterile to go to his arrival among the shepherds, the kiss between him and his wife, at the Annunciation to Anne the daughter and so on ... through the marriage of the Virgin, the Annunciation which is on the short wall, some miracles of Christ ... until his last moments of life- Judas ' betrayal, last supper, Caiaphas who tears up his clothes, and ascent to Calvary, descent from the cross, noli me tangere and Pentecost. the last log on the two long sides of the Chapel, in monochrome, is reserved to the representation of vices and virtues. the story ends on the back wall where is represented the last judgment. at the foot of the cross is the patron of Giotto's frescoes, which was inspired by the apocryphal Gospels and official ones. interesting details that can help to point out in each scene. for example the fact that Giotto painted with the same face Joachim, St. Joseph and St. Peter, being all 3 fathers: a father, a putative father and the father of the Church. is also playing the crucifix which is now no longer in the chapel but located in Museum in Padua. the visit lasted about an hour, in which she missed the attention for the excellent help narrative ability. only minor pecca...il fact that there were simultaneously for high turnout of visitors two other guides and being the reduced space in certain moments the voices clambered over giving a nuisance. I recommend visiting this museum's exhibition and certainly that the site looks very interesting! the Gospel according to Giotto will remain open until 30 April, daily at the following times:-weekdays: 9:00-12:30/14:30-18:00; -Holidays: 10:00-13:00/15:30-19:00. access to, and the visit is free!

  • Worth a visit! And then up to 30 April you can also visit the exhibition of Giotto. Both visits, campanile and view Giotto, are enhanced by the guides. Volunteers prepared, very courteous and helpful that will introduce you to all the curiosity of the place. A bell tower built by Faa Di Bruno to make its own Astronomical Observatory. It has a very narrow base 5x5mt and cast iron columns, a material that has a certain elasticity ... an innovation for its time. 300 are the steps to get to altitude 58, 51mt where you can see the heart of Turin from above, be in line with the Mole, note the skyscraper São Paulo and reluctantly the region and forget them by broadening our gaze to the snowy Alps horizon. A little curiosity taken from Wikipedia: "The significant height of the building is due to a reason purely curious and social. The Faà di Bruno wanted to avoid that workers and city workers were misled on working time. Calculated so that a watch of two meters in diameter placed on four faces of the tower about 70 meters high, would have been visible in much of the city and freely available to all. "
