Turin’s Automotive Architecture: Torino Esposizioni

Im südlichen Stadtteil der piemontesischen Hauptstadt – im San Salvario am Corso Massimo d’Azeglio – befindet sich das von Pier Luigi Nervi entworfene Messegelände Torino Esposizioni.

Torino Esposizioni was designed in the mid 1940’s and situated beside the Valentino park just outside the centre of Turin. The characteristic design of the vast, arched roof has served as an effective back drop to many new car launches. Designed from the outset to be a flexible space to host commercial fairs, it was home to the Turin Motor Show from 1948 to the early 1980’s.

Die Aufnahmen entstanden im Rahmen der Ausstellung ‘Dream. L’auto del futuro dal 1950′ im Jahre 2008.
