Walks in the city centre of Torino

Chiesa della Misericordia © Vincenzo Aiosa

 The Chiesa della Misericordia was once the church where prisoners condemned to death were given the last rites. An exhibition records the names of those sentenced to die, as well as the black hoods they wore, the small glass used for the final drink, the crucifix and beneath a marble slab their bones in an ossuary.
