Main Entrance to the Fair  at Umberto Bridge
Name: Main Entrance
Alternative Names: Entrata principale
Description: The Main Entrance of the Fair was situated at the corner between the avenues Vittorio Emanuele II and Cairoli, at the beginning of Ponte Umberto. The main rectangular body of the Entrance was composed by a white colonnade, surmounted by new baroque's arches and two pinnacles. As showed by the presence of two eagles (the Turinese Royal symbol) on the top of the pinnacles, this Entrance was a specific tribute to the Royal Family of Turin, the Savoy. Like most of the structures of the Fair, it was realized specifically for this occasion and demolished after the end of the event.
