Even in the rain, Turin is a good place for shopping thanks to its porticoes that are circulated from the center of the city.
Via Roma is the pre-eminently street of turinese shopping: you can find the most rinomate companies of the italian fashion.
Turin has even been the first italian capital of pret-à-porter.
Outside the stadium: Buying souvenirs
As always in Italy you'll find a lot of souvenir-sellers outside the stadium also in Torino. They you'll be able to buy scarves, matchshirts, pillows (not a bad idea in cold Torino!), flags, hats and everything.
And as always most of it is unofficial souvenirs. Only different thing with Torino is that also these souvenirs costs a lot. I'm really happy I don't support Juventus, because it would be terrible hard to buy any souvenirs for those prices...
You can also buy official Juventus-souvenirs from the homesite, www.juventus.it. There you'll find the link. Or go directly to www.juvestore.com. Souvenirs coming directly home to your postbox. But it's expensive...
Torino has a shop inside the city, on Via Spallanzani 20. Unfortunately I have never been there, so I can't give you any advice how to get there.
What to buy: Scarves, matchshirts, flags, hats, pillows and everything else you might wanna have.
What to pay: For unofficial souvenirs, 10-15 euro for scarves, shirts etc. For official, put another 50-70 euro on the price above.
8gallery: Shopping centre in one amazing building
The Old FIAT building at Lingotto has been dramatically redeveloped into a multi-use centre for Turin, with hotels, shops , cinemas, conference area, concert hall etc
The shopping centre claims to be 'upscale', although I think it could be catagorized as 'middle of the road' in terms of the quality of the 90-odd shops present.
Shopping centres arn't exactly my cup of tea, but there is plenty to see here, besides the shops as can be gleaned from looking at my Lingotto pages : The Former FIAT factory
What to buy: The souvenir to bring home is a bag of GIANDUIOTTI , little Lingots of chocolate and hazelnuts, which should be strong, not too sweet, and slightly gritty. The classic place to buy gianduiotti is Peyrano
