The biggest cultural breakthrough in Turin fell on the reign of the Duchy of Savoy, when it was Turin, not Chambery, that became the capital. This happened in the 16th - 19th centuries.
Italians often call the province "the cradle of Italian freedom", because it was here that famous public and political figures were born and grew up, who made a huge contribution to the Risorgimento, like Camillo Benso di Cavour. Here are located a variety of universities and gymnasiums, the main of which is the University of Turin, which was opened in the fifteenth century. The main symbol of the city is the Mole Antonelliana tower.
