Developed in the mid-1800s in the urbanized part of Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Borgo San Salvario stretches between Porta Nuova and Parco del Valentino.
A complex district, Borgo San Salvario is partly working-class (like San Donato and Vanchiglia), partly middle-class, with commercial activities connected to the railway station, and partially characterised by upper-middle class residencies along Parco del Valentino. Subjected for years to degradation and strong transformations due to its proximity to the railway station, since the 2000s this district has undergone a process of regeneration with the opening of clubs and restaurants attended by young people, becoming a main spot for Turin nightlife.
