TURIN - The elegant 'living room' of Turin, the new museum complex of Intesa Sanpaolo is born in Piazza San Carlo. Palazzo Turinetti, historic building with rooms rich in decorations, stuccos and mirrors, the headquarters of Inesa Sanpaolo, will host the fourth seat of the Gallerie d'Italia: it will support those of Milan, Naples and Vicenza, which in 2019 welcomed over 500,000 visitors. The new museum, which will be ready in a couple of years, will be mainly dedicated to photography and video-art, with temporary exhibitions of international photographers. To present the project, a new sign of the close relationship with the territory, but also part of the bank's Culture Project, the group's top management arrived in Turin: the emeritus president Giovanni Bazoli, the president Gian Maria Gros-Pietro and the managing director Carlo Messina.
"It is a great test of love, a new concrete act after the investment in the insurance pole", commented the president of the Piedmont Region, Alberto Cirio. "We are proud and enthusiastic, it is an important investment for the efforts we make and which have led to a 21% increase in the number of tourists in the last year", stressed the mayor Chiara Appendino.
The exhibition spaces - explained Michele De Lucchi, curator of the project - will be for the most part underground, accessible by a large staircase, in the current courtyard, which will bring natural light to the entrance hall. There will be areas dedicated to teaching and to a restoration laboratory. A selection of works from the bank's collections will be on display, including the Piblifoto Archive, consisting of approximately 7 million photographic shots of events, personalities and places created from the early 1930s to the 1990s and recently acquired by Intesa Sanpaolo.
"We are the first private employer in Piedmont because we give more work than FCA and Ferrero and we are the only ones who are leading the acceleration in hiring with the insurance project. This city and this region without agreement do not exist", he claimed with pride Messina who spoke of the museum project as "a great investment to bring back the building of Piazza San Carlo, emptied with the movement of the activity in the skyscraper, to be the center of the city. A gift to Turin". Gros-Pietro recalled that "Intesa Sanpaolo has over 8,000 employees in Piedmont and more than 3,600 in Turin and is the first group in the world to have four owned museums made available to the community".
