It says here, in fact, that is the door to hell as opposed to that of paradise that lie between the two Dioscuri in piazza Castello.
...L'obelisco è praticamente inaccessibile e sconosciuto a tutti, Torinesi e non, soffocato da un parcheggio insensato, da una piccola scorciatoia di passaggio per le auto, circondato da giardini spor... more »... The Obelisk is virtually inaccessible and unknown to all, Turin and not smothered by a senseless passing from a small shortcut parking for cars, dirty and poorly maintained gardens, mournfully cemented ... Yet the meaning of straight line between Turin and rivulets and basis of calculation of the meridian is not cheap, the scientist Beccaria deserved more than that ... It is also a point considered magical, like the whole Piazza Statuto, but that's another story .... To renovate and upgrade ....
The meridian chosen by the geophysical and Piedmontese mathematician, Giovanni Battista Beccaria. The extreme is not exactly on the 45 ° parallel. This obelisk is also connected to the black magic as this area is identified with one of the summits of the black magic, in fact it was used to bury the dead and for the crucifixions.
IF YOU ASK 100 TURIN WHAT IS THIS MONUMENT OR WHAT IT MEANS OR EVEN WORSE ASK IN WHICH CITY PASSES THE 45TH PARALLEL I THINK YOU COULD WRITE A BOOK OF JOKES OR......... HOLY IGNORANCE... HOWEVER, THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO THE TEACHING BODY AND THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
