Galleria Subalpina Torino
The Subalpine Gallery is one of the commercial malls of the city of Turin.

Designed by Pietro Carrera in 1873 opened 30th September 1874. It owes its name to the Industrial Bank Subalpina who assumed the burden of the building. The gallery, located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto, is fifty meters long, fourteen meters wide and about eighteen meters high. It features decorative elements in both Baroque and Renaissance style and it’s sourrounded throughout the whole perimeter by a balcony.

The gallery space was occupied by the Ministry of Finance until the capital of the Kingdom of Italy was moved to Florence.

Today there are several business premises including the historic cafe Baratti & Milano, an art gallery, an antiquarian bookstore and a cinema.
