It was the first capital of the unified Italy and the birthplace of hard chocolate. It is home to renowned Italian publishing houses and the headquarters for Fiat.  
As the capital of the Piedmont region and a hub of contemporary art, architecture and design, Turin continues to progress, reinvent and renew itself while respecting its rich traditions. 
The United Nations General Assembly established the United Nations System Staff College in 2001 in Turin to foster a cohesive leadership and management culture across the UN system. UNSSC’s headquarters is located on the UN’s only residential campus.

How to reach the campus
By plane

The UN Campus is about 45-minutes by taxi from the Turin International Airport (Caselle). Ask the driver to take you to the “BIT” as the campus is known in Turin.

By train

There are two major train stations in Turin: "Porta Nuova", which is closest to the UN Campus, and "Porta Susa". On a weekday, the taxi fare should be no more than 15 euros from Porta Nuova and 20 euros from Porta Susa to the campus.
