A worthwhile trip further afield, the star of Turin’s contemporary art scene is the 17th-century Castello di Rivoli . It’s a striking contrast to the contemporary art housed inside at the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea . Works by Franz Ackermann, Gilbert and George, and Frank Gehry would have been beyond the wildest imagination of the Savoy family, who resided at this site from the 14th century onwards. The castle is outside central Turin in the town of Rivoli (not to be confused with the city’s metro station named Rivoli).
