Parco Dora Ingest Area

The Ingest area of Parco Dora , with its 47,000 m², is the smallest lot Dora Park, and is at the further west; It develops longitudinally along Via Nole in the area bounded by Via Borgaro, immediately behind the residential complex at via Valdellatorre and the Church Chiesa del Santo Volto.

The design of this batch of the Park is characterized by a succession of areas with different functions and configurations: a arranged lawn, wooded areas, areas equipped for games, flower beds and a water garden with deep baths and running water channels. The latter is achieved by using large footings and foundation concrete structures of Fiat mills occupying the area before the transformation; also belonged to the old plant a row of pillars that support the walkway, along the area from west to east.

View Of Via Pietro Micca

Via Pietro Micca viewed from palazzo Madama, somehow it has a feel of a city in the older era....
Perhaps it is due to the tram's tracks....and the old buildings.

At the further end, the ugly skyscape that everyone hate is visible....unfortunately.

La Mole In Winter

Without the covering of the leaves from the trees, the Mole is more visible viewed from the Royal garden, it seems more serene and solemn.....and is always pleasant to look at.
