HistoryEdit

Torino Porta Milano was inaugurated on February 28, 1869 to serve travellers to the Lanzo Valleys. Trains also passed through the area of Venaria Reale and the Turin Airport. In 1986, work began to modernize the line which included plans to link with the passante ferroviaria, an underground tunnel passing underneath the city. The altered line now ends at Torino Dora station, rendering unusable the remaining the section which included Porta Milano. The station closed its doors in June 1986.[1]
