Turin’s Gallerie d’Italia offer an exhibition tour of 10,000 metres on five floors, three of which are underground: spaces in which photography and video art document and preserve images, events and reflections in order to promote the issues linked the evolution of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) sustainability.

One of the distinctive features of the Turin Gallerie is a multimedia room, a real jewel of technology and innovation, equipped with seventeen 4K projectors able to offer to visitors the feeling of literally being immersed in the images and the videos.
