The futuristic indoor arena right next to the Mole Antonelliana
It is the largest indoor arena in Italy and a reference point for the most important music and sports events in northern Italy, together with the Mediolanum Forum in Assago and the Unipol Arena in Bologna. Pala Alpitour in Turin is among the most modern indoor multi-purpose facilities in Italy, built for the 2006 Winter Olympics held in Piedmont.
Designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki to host the ice hockey tournament of the Olympic Games, the Pala Alpitour has gradually become one of the most acclaimed concert arenas by audiences and artists with a maximum capacity of 15,657 spectators. Major international artists such as Muse, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga and Madonna have performed here. But the versatility of the Pala Alpitour has made it possible to host musicals and events next-door to the Mole Antonelliana, such as Notre Dame de Paris and the 2022 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
With its functionality and futuristic style, this large parallelepiped clad in stainless steel and glass is easy to reach. From the centre of Turin there are several metro and bus lines to Pala Alpitour and even those travelling by car can count on the convenience of a large car park just a few minutes' walk from the arena.
