  • In the temple of food

    When in Piedmont, a visit to Turin’s famed Eataly, considered the Mecca of Italian food is an absolute must. First we’ll drop anchor at the Carpano Museum (hosted by Eataly) where our team will learn about the most interesting facts pertaining to the history and production of Vermouth. After this, participants will move onto the educational area for a team building experience dedicated to Turinese specialities. First and foremost, the group will learn how to make a perfect “bicerin” (a layered concoction of coffee and hot chocolate), subsequently going on to prepare something a little more difficult: i.e. mixing dough to make “grissini” (breadsticks) and then baking them, plus the preparation of “bagna cauda! (a hot Piedmontese dip made from anchovies, garlic and olive oil), accompanied by fresh and cooked seasonal vegetables. The winner will receive a huge “gianduiotto” (Turin’s famed chocolate) weighing one kilo.
  • Lights, camera, action!

    In the morning, participants will set off on a visit to the Museo Nazionale del Cinema housed inside the Mole Antonellian. One of the most important and fascinating in the world on account of its wealth of memorabilia and interactive activities. After a delicious, light lunch, the team building event, dedicated to the seventh art, will take place. What better way to stretch your team’s creativity and communication skills than have them plan, script, direct, perform and edit their very own reproduction of either a famous commercial or the scene of a cult movie, not only as actors and directors but also as make up artists and costume designers. The “team building movies” will be professionally mounted meaning that, at the end of the experience, everyone will have a chance to take home a souvenir of their day as a star.
  • Amidst esotericism and muder mysteries

    Allegedly, Turin forms a ‘white magic triangle’ of mystical energies along with Lyon and Prague, as well as a ‘black magic triangle’ with London and San Francisco. The afternoon tour between the places of these two different worlds includes a visit to Piazza Castello and the Triton Fountain, the white heart of the city, Piazza Solferino and the Angelica Fountain, the door of infinity and Piazza Statuto, the black heart of the region considered by many to be the gateway to hell. The themed dinner of the evening will be dedicated to the occasional visits to Turin by characters of the likes of Nostradamus and Cagliostro. Suddenly, without any warning, all the lights will go out and, when they come on again, someone will have be stabbed. A crime has been committed. Who is the guilty party? Each table of diners will be divided into a team which, after analysing all the clues available, will be asked to solve the crime.

Art and Culture

Like all large Italian cities, Turin also has a lot to offer from an artistic, historic and cultural point of view. The Mole Antonelliana is the symbol of this city, which houses one of the most important Egyptian museums in the world. However, the Turin scene is also animated and embellished by “palazzi”, castles and villas that bear witness to a past that, each day, gives both sense and shape to today’s modern world.
