Porta Palatina is considered the most conspicuous remains of Roman Turin and the oldest, grandiose and best preserved example of Roman city gate.
Of the ancient Porta Principalis Sinistra, today commonly called "Torri Palatine", which dates back to the first century AD, there is currently only the skeleton.
Originally leaning against the middle wall towards the interior of the city, there was a two-storey building for the guardhouse and a courtyard.
In Roman times the door was called Palatina because the proximity to the Palatium, seat of the Senate, the Curia and the civic administration, which seems to arise in today's nearby Piazza IV Marzo.

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
