Fontana del Frejus – This fountain was built to mourn all the workers perished while building the Frejus tunnel at the end of the 19th century, a strategic infrastructure that
connects Piedmont with southern France running under the Alps. Esoteric
believe it represents the black heart of the city for several reasons: its position is
adverse towards the sunset, this square used to be the place for public executions, the angel on top probably represents Lucifer and underneath the
statue there is a door leading to the entire sewer city network, believed to be the
gateway to hell.
