House of Dragons – Gothic revival style

Turin is the city of mysteries and with a mountain of hidden places, one of them is The House of Dragons, it is within walking distance of the center.

This house is a neo gothic style and was built in 1920 by Gottardo Gussoni, it is located in Corso Francia, the main liberty and gothic style street in the city.

For me this house is a special spot, when I was in high school a professor decided to have us copy the relief of the dragons of the building, it was endless work and it was also in winter! It was tough but it remains one of my fondest memories of high school. I still have the sketches!

What I suggest is to take a walk from Piazza Statuto, cross Corso Francia and go to Piazza Bernini. Take your time and keep your eyes at the top, you will discover the hidden wonders.
