The name “turin” originates from “Tau”, a Celtic word that means mountains. The Italian name, “Torino” translates into “little bull” (note the coat of arms and symbol of the city). In pre-Roman times, the area was settled by the Taurini, who were ancient Celt-Ligurian people. In the first century B.C., approximately 28 B.C., the Romans created a military camp called, Castra Taurinorum. The distinctive Roman street grid can still be seen in the modern city. After the fall of the Roman Empire the city was conquered by the Lombards, followed by the Franks. Piazza San Carlo, via Po and the Royal Palace were built in this period. After the Treaty of Utrecht, the Kingdom of Sardinia was annexed to the Duchy of Savoy. After a brief occupation by Napoleon in 19th century, the city began to actively pursue the unification of Italy. In 1871, the Frejus Tunnel was opened, making Turin a significant communication mode. The Museo Egizio, the Mole Antonelliana, the Gran Madre church and Vittorio Veneto square were built at this time. Turin became the capital of the newly proclaimed United Italy in 1861. In 1865 the capital was moved to Rome, but since 1870 the capital of Italy has been Rome. It was around this time that Turin began a rapid industrialization period. After WWI, conflicts between workers and industrialists began. The first strikes took place in 1920, when the Lingotto factory was occupied. After WWII, Turin was quickly rebuilt and its industries greatly developed. This resulted in waves of immigration, notably in the southern regions of Italy. In the 1980s, industrial crises hit the city and its population began to decline. Learn more about Turin here.
