TURIN | Spina Centrale

The Passante Ferroviario (Railway Loop) (more than 7 km of tracks were buried) is the largest infrastructural project carried out in Torino since post World War II times. The project allowed for the attaching of two portions of the city that have always been separated by railroad tracks and the creation of the Spina Centrale (Central Spine), the “backbone” of the city’s development, the fulcrum of the principal projects of urban transformation.





The creation of a new boulevard along the Spina Centrale (Central Backbone) was an opportunity to create a traffic project from nothing – in favour of environmental quality and the life of its residents – improving traffic conditions with the separation of its flow: the large axis with a more elevated speed traffic flow in the middle, parallel boulevards for moderate speed traffic, a bicycle route, a rest area, sidewalks and green areas. The project joins art and public space through an initiative – entrusted by the CittÓ di Torino to the competence of Rudi Fuchs, director of Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum, and Cristina Mundici – that plans upon placing installations of 11 famous contemporary artists along the boulevard. The artists chosen are: Per Kirkeby, Mario Merz, Giuseppe Penone, Walter Pichler, Giovanni Anselmo, Luigi Mainolfi, Giulio Paolini, Ulrich RŘckriem, Gilberto Zorio, Jannis Kounellis and Michelangelo Pistoletto. The first three works have already been completed: “Igloo” by Mario Merz, the artist from Milan; the “Caduti di Cefalonia e Corf¨” garden redesigned with new paths and trees by Giuseppe Penone and “Opera per Torino” by Danish artist Per Kirkeby.

Some of the most important projects of transformation in Torino will be created along the Spina Centrale (the Backbone crossing Backbones 1, 2, 3 and 4): the new Porta Susa railway station (which will be the city’s main railway station in the future), the requalification of the OGR (Railway Body Shops) and Carceri Nuove (prison), the creation of the new Intesa San Paolo headquarters designed by Renzo Piano, the recuperation of industrial areas no longer in use that will host the new Cittadella del Politecnico (Polytechnic University Campus) as well as the creation of a Park along the Dora Riparia river north of Torino.

SPINA 2
Porta Susa railway Station


Torino Porta Susa is a railway station in Turin, northern Italy; it is the second busiest mainline station in the city, after Torino Porta Nuova. It is located in Corso Inghilterra.
The station was built in 1868 during the expansion of the city towards the west. Trains between Torino Porta Nuova and Milan stop at the station, including TGV services between Paris and Milan and other services using the Turin–Milan high-speed line.

In April 2006 work began to rebuild the station in conjunction with the construction of the Turin Passante regional railway. This work involved the quadrupling of tracks through central Turin. At Porta Susa the line was widened to six tracks with new platforms built below the Corso Inghilterra road. A 300 metre long and 19 metre high glass and steel structure has been built above the tracks to create a new station, which is intended to become the main hub of urban, regional and international rail traffic in Turin. The design of the project was developed by the Paris-based studio, Silvio d'Ascia Architecture, with AREP and Agostino Magnaghi, after the team won an international competition.[1] The station was inaugurated on 14 January 2013 by Prime Minister Mario Monti.[2] The total cost — estimated at €65 million — was borne entirely by the rail network operator, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI).[3] Plans for the project also include a 100 metre high office tower for the state railways, Ferrovie dello Stato.

Ciao! Le colonnine grigie verranno rimosse. Per la precisione una Ŕ giÓ sparita, la prima a sinistra guardando dal lato giardini.
Anche io speravo che il cladding continuasse almeno fino alla fine delle colonne bianche, ma credo che ormai quella che vediamo sia la soluzione finale.
