Discover Torino

ADVANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE IN A UNIQUE SETTING

5.jpgAAT-AD/PDTM 2018 will take place at The Centro Congressi Lingotto - a unique venue blending history, art and culture, providing a superb combination of the past and modernity. 

Lingotto was the first Fiat car factory and the venue's roof still features a distinctive running track remodeled from the former Fiat car testing track.

Built between 1917 and 1922, Lingotto was designed in a rationalist, innovative style. The building symbolised a turning point in the development of Italian industry, marking the end of one era and the start of another.
