For centuries Turin has been considered a mysterious city, where white and black magic intertwine giving rise to fascinating myths and legends. In the past, the “Underground Turin” has given hospitality and protection to symbols of magic, such as esotericist and alchemist Alessandro Cagliostro and “seer astrologer” Nostradamus. An ancient legend argues that the city was founded by the Egyptians, precisely by Fetonte, the son of goddess of magic Isis, who wanted to create a worship center for god Api, depicted as a bull, just in the place where the rivers Dora and Po cross, these representing the male and the female: the Sun and the Moon.
A special feeling connects the master of suspense, known as the “Italian Hitchcock”, with this magical, fascinating and austere city. In his autobiography, Dario Argento confessed that “Turin is the place where my nightmares fit best. This city is a beautiful theatrical set: when I think of a movie, I imagine it here.” It is no coincidence that the director filmed the most important scenes of his masterpieces in the mysterious aura of Turin, first among all the disturbing “Deep Red” of 1974. In CLN Square, right in front of the two imposing sculptures by Umberto Baglioni depicting the Dora and Po rivers, actors Gabriele Lavia and David Hemmings witnessed the first horrific murder of the movie, involving the psychic Helga Ullman.
Between history and legend, between good and evil, Piedmont’s capital remains magical and mysterious for many… just like the Montecore woman. Enigmatic and seductive, she can choose between an elegant silk-viscose velvet padded raincoat with waterproof treatment, or a water repellent Jacquard trench coat with high thermal insulation padding and detachable fur collar.
