Overview

The Gran Madre is the true "magic pole" of Turin. As if the talk about the Holy Grail and Nostradamus was not enough, the whispers about the Gran Madre have to be mentioned, "Black masses are held there underground". This is the first thing a Torinese will tell you as he points to the church in front of Piazza Vittorio on the other side of the Po. But how do these rumors start? Mainly from two sources: first, the city is criss-crossed by underground passages that have always been the settings for black masses; second, the church was built in a very particular spot. Since the city was founded, different temples have stood exactly where the Gran Madre can now be admired. It is therefore possible to imagine that the ruins of the previous buildings can be accessed. Put the two together and the result is the rumours.
