A place in Turin that I visit almost always since my first visit in 1995. Apart from it being phenomenal for me and frankly being biased as well, since some iconic scenes in Dario Argento`s Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) were shot here, there is a shop where I use to buy myself music and movies.

Piazza C.L.N. is a square located near the Piazza San Carlo, in the center of Torino, the main city of Piedmont. It is a modern square built in the middle of the 20th Century during the fascist period and it has two big statues, which represent the two rivers of the city: the Po and the Dora. Nowadays, the meaning of the name of the square is National Liberation Comitteé, in honour to people who liberated the city from fascist.

Quite a striking sight as you wonder from the station towards the Piazza San Carlo.
Very decorative.

Moving from the station, tourists see only 2 fountains on this square and nothing else. By the way, during the fascist dictatorship, this square was called "the Square of two fountains". The Marcello Piacentini project provided for the construction of these fountains and statues of Mussolini and the king Victor Immanuel III. This was to symbolize the unity of the country, understood in the fascist sense as the unity of the fascist movement and the Royal power. However, fascism doesn`t hope for symbolic unity and always reinforces it with Ultimo Ratio Regis - the last argument of the kings- with violence. The Gestapo under command of the military crimanal -SS captain Aloiz Schmidt had been here since September 1943. It was located behind the tourists in the current Hotel Nazionale, which is located on the left behind, if you look at the fountains. The unusual name of the square is also associated with fascism, or rather with liberation from it. C. L. N is an abbreviation of Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale-the Committee of national liberation, an organization created by 3 left and 3 right parties to liberate Italy from fascism and the Institute of a new national unity, which didn`t last long after WW II. And as for the statues of the Duce and the king, they didn`t have time to erect. The Duce was hanged (already dead) in 1945 at Piazza Loreto in Milan, and Victor Immanuel abdicated in 1946. It didn`t save the Monarchy and the Italians chose the Republic in a referendum a month later. Only two fountains, symbolizing the Po and the Dora Riparia, left. You could say Piazza Navona is half full. Of course there`s Bernini in Rome , and here only Umberto Baglioni, there`s Sant'Agnese in Agone by Borromini, and here only the back of two twin churches, but still....

Il Po is here for viewing in this smaller square, An historic area full of interest. Some refurbishment going on in Sept 2019 to improve things. Carry on a little bit and you are in the much bigger Piazza San Carlo

My hubby is a massive Dario Argento fan, so a trip to Turin was a must.

We entered the Piazza to the right of the fountains and his face just lit up as he realised where we were.

He explained where the various angles were that Dario used and the window where the woman is murdered.

I would suggest watching Profondo Rosso before visiting the square.

An amazing location with fabulous architecture.

This small square, from which it starts the Via Rome, it's on the way to Piazza Reale or on the way to the train Station.

The two beautiful big sculptures represent the two rivers that cross the city: Po River and Dora River.

In the surroundings you will find a lot of shops and places to eat.

These sculptures can be found in the historic center of Turin. They we ignored for a long time and only in this millennium they were restored and brought into the current shape with running water in the fountains.

Piazza CLN (Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale) sits behind the twin churches of San Carlo Borromeo and Santa Cristina, both built in the first half of 1600 with their baroque façade s overlooking Piazza San Carlo. Piazza CLN still carries the portico continuity although it shows an architecture leap of 300 years. These elegant marble-cladded buildings were built around 1935 in the typical "squareness" style of the Fascist era. Two impressive fountains portray a male and a female sculptured figures representing the Po and the Dora rivers respectively. The length of the visit is about 15 minutes.
