Eso­teric Turin

Where Turin - - SHOPPING -

Turin is a city of mys­tery, magic and leg­end. Its ‘mag­i­cal’ sig­nif­i­cance is at­trib­uted to its geo­graph­i­cal po­si­tion, along the 45th par­al­lel where the Po and Dora rivers meet. More im­por­tantly, it cre­ates the ver­tices of two tri­an­gles, a tri­an­gle of white magic and a tri­an­gle of black magic. This ex­plains why Turin boasts nu­mer­ous shops ded­i­cated to ar­cane prac­tices where you can pur­chase books, in­cense, tarot cards, can­dles, plus any­thing else as­so­ci­ated with the oc­cult world.
