  • Only those who are fond of magic Turin may be interested in visiting this small obelisk topped by a metal globe set in a shabby garden of piazza Statuto. 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.

  • ... 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 ....

  • In addition to that indicator of the 45th parallel this would be the entrance of the underworld for the lovers of black Turin....

  • 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.
