Lingotto Fiere

Landmark in Turin

Turin's former Fiat factory, one of Italy's most praised examples of early-20th-century industrial architecture, is 5km south of the city centre. It was redesigned by architect Renzo Piano in the 1980s to house an exhibition centre, a university campus and hotels. While still starkly beautiful, the shopping mall that occupies much of its accessible space is less than inspiring.
