Orbassano is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 13 kilometres (8 miles) southwest of Turin. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 21,667 and an area of 22.1 square kilometres (8.5 sq mi).
By the end of the first millennium, Orbassano was among the lands of the Margrave of Susa, but in 1029 it found itself sold by Manfredi to the new Abbey of San Giusto in Susa. Shortly thereafter, in 1035, some of the land came into the possession of the Diocese of Turin. In the twelfth century Orbassano came under the control of its northern neighbours the Lords of Rivalta, the Orsini family.
