Abstract

Turin has a long history of religious diversity, especially migration-driven. After suffering persecutions and socio-spatial reclusion, during the second half of nineteenth century its historical minorities celebrated their emancipation with the construction of outstanding temples. Today, the city faces an unprecedented diversification of its religious field. In order to face religious spatial needs, the city council issued a call for proposals to provide the town with a multi-faith space dedicated to local minorities. The project of a Casa delle religioni was selected in 2016. A three-year participative process involved twenty religious organizations in the common definition of needs, practices, and wills about the common use of space. At the end of the process, the project included an Orthodox chapel and a muṣallā for the two main minority communities, as well as an adaptive main hall for other communities and public activities, a library, and a space for study and research.
