Angels in Turin
Looking around in Turin be careful where you go, not only could happen to bump into monsters, demons, Gargoyles, but also angels.
Turin, the magical city, is a set of forces of good and evil.
The angels that I photographed are to support the balcony on the first floor of a strange building on the corner of Via Pietro Micca with Via San Francesco d’Assisi near Piazza Solferino.
Not much is known, the building once looked at the square but now is almost buried, obscured, hidden by a huge and horrible fifteen floors building dated back to 60′.
This is truly one of those three or four buildings in the historic center of Turin that should be demolished.
I passed that way a thousand times and more, a day like any other, finally I saw them.
Certainly are not the kind of angels you are used to, just watch them and will feel in them pain, fatigue, stress.
They are real angels, fallen angels who look down exhausted, to the passer-by who will not even note them.
Not far from the angels, about thirty meters in Via San Francesco d’Assisi, on the sidewalk, there are some very strange eyes, probably used for the air of the cellars and basement of the buildings.
Perhaps this is another esoteric symbol since we are only a few meters from the palace and its splendid wooden gates built by the Freemasons in Via Alfieri 19.
