WE KNOW FOR SURE TURIN, ITALIAN’S NORTHWEST CITY. OFTEN ITALIANS CALLED IT “CITY OF MAGIC”, WHERE BOTH WHITE AND DARK MAGIC COHABIT.
Many legends and many stories are told about it. For all the centuries they enhances the reputation of Turin as “Torino Magica”, “Magic Torino”. Esotericism’s experts, infact, talk about a tringle of black magic and Turin is one of this three cities involved (London and San Francisco are the other ones).
All began with the Roman Empire and its expansion. Augusta Taurinorum, latin name of Turin, was founded in AD 28 from imperator August’s wish. In that period the city was divided in an east zone, where the sun rises (good side) and a west zone, where sun sets (evil side).
There are five most known esoteric places releasing misterous energies.
The most famous one is Piazza Statuto, a square called “The Turin’s Dark Heart”. The Val Occisorum, an acient necropolis where many people were condemned to death and died, was right there, where Piazza Statuto is today. Besides, in this square there a significant symbols: on the monument of Frejus’ top there is a beautiful angel. They think is Lucifer, the fallen angel, whose eyes would look to east to guide the evil army against the sun, the light.
An other esoteric place is “Palazzo del diavolo”, the Devil’s palace. A lots of stories of murders, missing people and numerology coincidens are told about this palace and its big front door (also called “Portone del Diavolo”, Devil’s front door). They told the Devil himself put the front door, to imprisone a wizard who dared to invoke him uselessy.
The Museo delle Antichità Egizie also has an important role in white and black magic. The museum, infact, preserves a lots of object which trasmit positive and negative energy and create a huge magnetic field of forces. Pharaoh Tutankamon’s objetcs and mummified head of Seth, brother and killer of Osirides, god of the deads and the underworld.
We can find an other black magic symbol on Lascaris street. Many years ago there were a Masonic house. Today this building is a bank. The building’s foundation still got strange holes, meant to give more light in the underground. They think they’re the Devil’s eyes because they do look like eyes.
The trip continue on to Rondò della Forca, a place where there were the gallows. Many pepople died there until 1863. Then there is Piazza Solferino, a square where we can find the “Fontana delle Quattro Stagioni”, the Four seasons’ fountain. The Cattolic Church considered its statues inspired by masonic imagines.
Besides, Turin is not only one of three cities in the dark magic triangle, it also belongs to the white magic triangle with Lyon and Prague. So, the city’s got a “white” side with symbols and places realising good energgy. For example, in Piazza San Carlo there is statue of Virgin Mary and the holy Shroud. Walking through Piazza Castello, symbol of light and positive forces, you get to Piazza Vittorio, where in front of Grande Madre di Dio church there is the statue of Vittorio Emanuele I and the direction would tell you where the Saint Graal is hidden, according to the leggend.
In Turin there are a lots of tours which guide thousands of tourists to discover this esoteric places, like for example the Torino Magica Tour, a night trip you can take every thurdays and Saturdays.
