I toretti, or small fountains with the head of a bull, symbolize Turin for locals and tourists alike. You won’t likely visit them all, as there are 800 spread out across the city’s public spaces. The fresh water they provide proves invaluable during hot weather. Politicians have tried to replace them with water-saving, on-demand fountains, but locals resist such efforts. Bring a water bottle and fill up at one of these for free. Using our world travel planner, Turin attractions like I toretti can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Characteristic green fountain with the head of the bull from whose mouth gushes the ever-present jet of water, hence the name toretti, scattered throughout the city is in the parks always provide a good drink especially in the summer. It might seem like a waste of water, instead from what I know, they serve to regulate the pressure in the aqueduct, they are among the symbols of Turin
