The Project

Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo has taken action to support the religious heritage of Turin, by restoring several of the architectural gems that embellish the most historic part of the city.
Since its launch in 2001, the project has seen the investment of over 25 million euros in restoration programmes, aimed at tracing a pathway between the city’s religious monuments to Baroque art, while at the same time restoring and showcasing its museum heritage.


Thirty-five of Turin’s most beautiful churches are involved, mostly in the city’s historic centre.
Look at the biographical notes and find out more about the artists, architects and patrons who took part in the development of this majestic heritage.
