Fiat Factory Turin

In the 1920s Fiat factory cars ascended from the ground floor as they were assembled and emerged onto a test track on the roof.


  1. I spent a lot of time in this building and walked from the rooftop test track to ground level on the spiral ramp. It is now a shopping centre/office complex in Torino, reimagined by Renzo Piano prior to the 2006 Winter Games. It was at that time equiped with a rooftop helipad to allow IOC Officials to come and go without having to deal with the great unwashed.
