With those unmistakable horns and the typical bottle green, the Torets are the historic fountains symbol of Turin. In the city you will find more of them than kebab shops and pizzerias, just look around and they will be there, ready to give you a sip of fresh and free water. They have a history that has spanned more than 150 years, they have seen monarchies and governments fall without ever batting an eye. You will find them only here, why not organize a trip on purpose to come and see them?
The association i love toret
Since 2012 we have been taking care of protecting and enhancing our beloved Torets through the organization of events, social initiatives and the sale of special merchandising, in order to preserve them and build - at the same time - a common conscience that leads to respect and enhancement of one of the icons of Turin.

Discover the more than 800 Torets on the interactive map, move through the neighborhoods and streets of Turin to find your favorite Toret that you want to take care of.

Not only that: add photos and comments and tell your stories related to the Toret!
"Even if he has horns, that's not a good reason to betray him.
Especially after years of a thirst-quenching career."

Put the Toret back!
The time has come to put the Torets back in their place!
From the 2012 municipal project to replace the Torets, fortunately never completed, there are still two stone fountains in the wonderful Piazza Carlo Alberto. With our project "Put the Toret back!" we asked the municipality of Turin to replace them with real Torets, to restore the square's historical, architectural and symbolic value, when the first Italian Parliament resided there.
