  • According to the esoteric evil place in the city. In particular the Obelisk geodetic survey (twin is at the end of c.so France in Rivoli). Also the monument to the fallen of the Frejus tunnel contains other esoteric symbols (the winged genius at the top). Anyway get off the metro and enjoy the arcaded square, take via Garibadi and arrived in p.zza Castello, turn into via Roma and reach p.zza Carlo Felice where you can catch the metro. Is a walking path to relax and enjoy the beauty of the city.

  • One of the few statues in the world dedicated to the figure of Lucifer or the fallen angel (Besides the one in Madrid and in Quito). It was made to commemorate the construction of the Frejus tunnel (the one that connects France and Italy). In addition to Lucifer on top of the statue, there are some dead titans on the lower part of it. At the time this statue was built, it meant a triumph of the reason over the brute force, and it remembers the suffering of the miners who worked in the digging of the tunnel.

  • Monument dedicated to the realization of the Frejus railway tunnel, designed by count Marcello Panissera of Veglio, President of the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti, and inaugurated in 1879, consists of a pyramid of huge boulders coming from tunnel excavation; the pyramid is topped by a winged genius, with a five-pointed star on the head (removed during the restoration of 2013), under which there are marble figures of the Titans shot down. The whole thing is an allegory of the triumph of reason on brute force, positivist spirit of the age in which it was made. However, in folk tradition, in this original meaning if it is overlapping another, according to which the monument celebrates the suffering endured by miners of that time to carry out the work.
