At the Victory House (also known as the House of the Carrera or House of the Dragons) is a historic building in Turin, considered one of the most interesting examples of civic residence in neo-Gothic style in the capital of Piedmont. The building is spread over five floors high and rises on the axis of Corso Francia, in the elegant residential district Cit Turin. It is in eclectic style with evident French neogothic incursions found in the structural details such as the portal and the entrance atrium, the balustrades of balconies and internal staircases and the pronounced Corner-window angle with mullioned windows and full-scale mullioned windows that Culminates with a embattled turret. Of great evidence is the complex decorative apparatus of the main elevations characterized by the wide use of elements in Lithocemento, allegorical and zoomorphic decorations, including the pair of great dragons that flank the large wooden entrance portal; It is precisely the presence of these decorative elements that, over the years, has earned him the name of "House of the Dragons". The decoration starts from the base of the main elevations simulating a stone ashlar with horizontal bands extending up to the noble floor. At this level the windows are enriched by a frame that at the base shows coats of arms depicting allegories that punctuate the façade, alternating with the pairs of dragons that support the balustrades of the balconies of the upper floor. The remaining arched windows contain simpler frames, while the two large central Bovinas show double-sided mullioned windows and also culminate with a terrace. The building has a beving and a niche on the corner of the next street: It seems to have been conceived to house a statue that has never been placed there.
Fascinating palace and rich in history. An obligatory passage for lovers of architecture and neo-Gothic style
