Exhibitions in Turin not to be missed

Autumn-Winter 2023

Exhibitions in Turin not to be missed

Autumn has arrived in the city and with it, Turin is slowly changing colour. The morning fog has returned to gently envelop the city, the warm afternoons are back to spend among museums, temporary exhibitions and historic cafés, and the breathtaking sunsets are back to admire in the warmth, behind the windows of our suites.
Turin's cultural offerings are constantly evolving, and the increasingly interesting temporary exhibitions are a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the world of art, thanks to unique and often unpublished works of art.
Here is a roundup of the exhibitions in Turin not to be missed in autumn-winter 2023.
