In the period of Turin’ major urban development between the two World Wars a period in which Turin is considered both a laboratory city and a leading industrial city the financier and industrialist Riccardo Gualino, also a renowned art-collector and patron of the arts, plays a major role as the promoter of modern architecture (ranging from urban buildings to stalls, from the offices by Pagano and Levi Montalcini to the Villa-museum built at the end of the 1920’s). Of particular importance, the industrial and residential complex Snia-Viscosa was created by Gualino in 1925. It is a large building area, including the industrial plant and the workers’ quarters, which required an enormous effort both in terms of financial resources, design and planning. Both public and private sectors were involved in the project, which is part of the new infrastructure system to be built in the northern part of Turin towards Milan area.
