A collective project of city imaging to build a powerful narrative through images, which enhances the potential of the city and its international positioning.
Torino Stratosferica = Torino at its best
How is the city of our dreams? Torino Stratosferica is an independent initiative that aims at creating the best possible image of the city, flying high and looking ahead. An ambitious collective vision, fuelled by the ideas of several representatives from the local creative industry.
Three days of inspiration – city makers from all over the world
Utopian Hours is the first international festival of city making in Italy. The sixth edition will be held from 14th to 16th October 2022 at Centrale di Nuvola Lavazza, with even more guests and exhibitions scheduled.
The city is a mental weapon.
When we think of a city, we automatically have an image in our mind. How much does this image correspond to reality?
Torino Stratosferica is an innovative city imaging project, a collective experiment aiming at creating and promoting the best image of Turin. If we could change the city, what would we do? What would we like Turin to look like in the future?
Visions, places and projects…
The Torino Stratosferica method is based on the encounter between disciplines: branding, communication, architecture, social innovation, city making.
The vision is never missing. Since 2014 until today, through collective visioning sessions and subsequent editing work, Torino Stratosferica has proposed numerous ideas and visions for a Turin at its maximum potential – from the most provocative intuitions to concrete proposals for intervention in various places throughout the city.
There is life on water
Torino Stratosferica is the city of the four rivers. Water is an essential theme in the city’s ideal positioning. Together with Matteo Pericoli, we have imagined various interventions to live more of the Po the river banks, inspired by the best projects we see abroad.
Our film about city making
Twenty-one city makers and city dreamers from different countries, in twenty-one places in Turin. To each, a question about the life and future of cities. Torino Stratosferica brings together the voices and ideas of the protagonists of Utopian Hours 2018 in a short film.
Turin seen by the Visiting Urban Explorer
Torino Stratosferica has created an original urban residence project: a foreign city expert is invited to the city for 4 days, to visit it independently and discover its identity. On the fifth day he/she takes the floor at the festival, to tell us his/her ideas for a better Turin.
