From Piazza Statuto, one enters Corso Francia, an extremely long, straight road which leads to Rivoli from Turin through the town of Collegno. It was once the main road which lead to the Val di Susa from the city and from there to France, now it is one of the most important access roads into the city. There are some interesting buildings at the beginning of the route which were built in the art nouveau period. After Piazza Rivoli, it opens onto the Tesoriera park on the right which takes its name from the villa Sartirana or Tesoriera which is inside the park and is a typical example of an excellently preserved eighteenth century villa.
