Torino is a city and an important business and cultural centre in northern Italy. It is the capital city of Piemonte and of the Metropolitan City of Torino, and was the first Italian capital from 1861 to 1865. The city is mainly on the western bank of the Po River, below its Susa Valley, and is surrounded by the western Alpine arch and Superga Hill. The population of the city proper is 847,287 (31 January 2022) while the population of the urban area is estimated by Eurostat to be 1.7 million inhabitants. The Turin metropolitan area is estimated by the OECD to have a population of 2.2 million.

The city used to be a major European political centre. From 1563, it was the capital of the Duchy of Savoy, then of the Kingdom of Sardinia ruled by the House of Savoy, and the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy from 1861 to 1865. Torino is sometimes called “the cradle of Italian liberty” for having been the political and intellectual centre of the Risorgimento as well as the birthplace of notable individuals who contributed to it, such as Cavour.

Even though much of its political influence had been lost by World War II, although having been a center of anti-fascist movements during the Ventennio including the Italian resistance, Torino became a major European crossroad for industry, commerce and trade, and is part of the “industrial triangle” along with Milan and Genoa. It is ranked third in Italy, after Milano and Roma, for economic strength. With a GDP of $58 billion, the city is the world’s 78th richest by purchasing power. As of 2018, the city has been ranked by GaWC as a Gamma level global city. Torino is also home to much of the Italian automotive industry, with the headquarters of FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo.
