In 1004 Gezone, the bishop of Turin contributed the lands of Sangano to the abbey of San Solutore.
1. Sanguine River
Beginning at some 2000 m above the water level in the Cottian Alps, it goes through the Val Sanguine, in between the Val di Susa (north) and the Val Chisone (south). It consequently streams in between the comuni of Coazze and Giaveno, then near Trana, and after that goes into the plain of Turin. After travelling through the areas of Orbassano, Beinasco, Rivalta di Torino and Nichelino amongst the others, the Sanguine goes into the Po River in between Turin and Moncalieri, at 220 meters (720 feet).
Sanguine had, in the past, a somewhat various course from the existing one. The Sanguine might just reach the present place of the confluence in the Po following the inscription of the sedimentary deposits linked to the Morainic Amphitheater of Rivoli-Avigliana.
It comes from the outer part of the Cottian Alps: the source is the Fontana Mura, near the Roussa hill at nearly 2,000 m. After marking the border in between the towns of Coazze and Giaveno, it passes near Trana and after that exits to Turin plain. Its path is for about 21 km in a mountainous area and the rest on the prairie. After travelling through the centres of Orbassano, Beinasco and Nichelino (in whose area the course of the stream was customized at the end of the 19th century, also following synthetic interventions) it streams into the Po near the border in between Turin and Moncalieri around elevation 220 m above water level.
The stretch in between Giaveno and Trana is abundant in unusual fish types such as grayling and shellfishes such as crayfish. From Sangano onwards, due to regular water withdrawals from irrigation outlets, the course of the stream is decreased to a practically dry riverbed for the majority of the year.
2. Lakes of Avigliana
The park of this Lake positioned at the mouth of the Susa Valley, at the foot of Mount Pirchiriano on which increases the ancient abbey of the Sacra di San Michele, in a particular location of the morainic amphitheatre of Rivoli-Avigliana, only 20 kilometres from Turin. The park is not just proposed to safeguard a corner of nature; however, it also desires to recognize a symbiosis with the town of Avigliana established on the regard of the natural balance.
3. Parco naturale Laghi di Avigliana
The park lies in a particular location of the moraine amphitheatre, going back to the last two excellent ancient glaciations. Found merely 20 kilometres from Turin, the Avigliana Lakes Natural Park is an outstanding location for a trip out of the mayhem of city life.
Natural Park uses a fantastic range of flowers and animals to be found and appreciated. The function of developing this park was not just to maintain the animal and the area, and plant specimens discovered there, however also to incorporate nature and everyday life of the regional population. The function of developing this park was not just to protect the animal and the area, and plant specimens discovered there, but also to incorporate the nature and day-to-day life of the regional population.
4. Monte San Giorgio
Come and go to these spots, the regional area in addition to the fossil Museum, they will enable you to find a fascinating lost world dating over 200 million years earlier.
Monte San Giorgio is among the essential fossil deposit worldwide, for the Middle Triassic, a geological duration which happened in between 247 and 237 countless years back. The fossils originating from this mountain are known for their range and their remarkable high preservation, they have been excavated and evaluated by Italian and swiss palaeontologists from 1850. Its engraving enhanced the worldwide acknowledgement of this classical fossil region to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003 for the Swiss side and in 2010 for the Italian area.
Monte San Giorgio is a wooded mountain (1,097 m above sea level) of the Lugano Prealps, ignoring Lake Lugano in Switzerland. It lies in the southern part of the canton of Ticino, in between the towns of Brusino Arsizio, Riva San Vitale, and Meride. Meride is the Museum of fossils from Monte San Giorgio, created by the Ticinese designer Mario Botta.
5. Acquedotto di Sangano Villarbasse
The Acquedotto was born at the request of Carlo Felice, in 1832 (one year after the King’s death) his widow Maria Cristina commissioned the engineer Ignazio Michela to study the ideal ways of communicating to Turin. The sparkling water system, developed from 1842 to obtain drinking water from the top-quality springs of the Val Sangone to the city of Turin, was inaugurated on March 6, 1859. The peculiarities of its architectural structure and the fantastic engineering work it represents make so that the website is called a genuine “cathedral of water.”
