La Casa del Demone – A tasty descent to hell

The Devil is a recurring theme in the architecture and history of Turin, considered one of the urban centres where white and black magic convey their energies. When I was a kid, my father, an architect, used to bring me on a walk down the narrow streets of the city center, showing me his hidden and griming representations discreetly adorning the facades of the boulevards in Turin, the door knockers and the frescos of some arcade roofs.

And from 2011 Hell’s kitchen has also a found a name and an address in Turin: located in the heart of Quadrilatero Romano (the oldest part of Turin, where once upon a time the Roman colony Augusta Taurinorum was founded), the casa del Demone (the house of the Devil) is a very interesting place: not only do I really enjoy the interior spaces, which are carefully decorated as a set that reminds of an Argento horror movie, full of paraphernalia such as skull-shaped glasses, open black sarcophagi as tables and creepy paintings. This bar restaurant also offers a very good selection of cocktails (“the Dawn of the Living Dead” is my favourite), while the selection of meat and side-dishes is terrifyingly delicious.

The kitchen is open till late so you can also consider it, like I usually do, for a late snack in the middle of the night.
