In between events, Club To Club is the perfect occasion to discover Turin from all sides. From its royal side, the heritage of Savoia royal dynasty, to the industrial one, with its impressive buildings, to the contemporary and creative side.

Club To Club takes place during the Contemporary Art Week, which allows you to experience Turin at its liveliest. It is the most important event organized by Contemporary Art, and a pole of contemporary art for Piedmond and Turin. Artissima is the most important and enduring art exposition in Italy and it turned into one of the key events for every art-lover in Europe.
