Torre Canavese is a city in the province of Torino in Northern Italy. Torre means tower in Italy, in this case "Torre" is referring to the tower on the city's castle. It is located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Torino and 14 kilometres (9 mi) from Ivrea. Torre is an agricultural town in which many of the residents grow their own fruits and vegetables. Within the confines of Torre there is a castle and a Catholic church, the church tower was built by Savino Barello. Each year on Fat Tuesday there is a town gathering at the bar where the citizens gather and eat beans—cooked in a terra cotta pot over an open flame—and soup. The weather ranges from the 90s in the summer to the mid-20s in the winter. Because Torre is located in the Pre-Alps the city can have a few feet of snow in the winter.
