From the first horse-trams to electric ones, up to the new route 4; from the first trolleybus experiment at the dawn of the twentieth century, to the automatic subway in the early twenty-first century. "Torino Tram Filobus Metro" presents the evolution of the tramway, trolleybus and underground network in the subalpine capital with an unprecedented quantity of historical and statistical data, concerning the history of public transport in general and of the lines operated in particular.

The work takes up the scheme present in "Tramway lines in Turin": the first part of each chapter, dedicated to the evolution of the network, has been considerably deepened, just as the cards concerning the history of each line have been rewritten with even greater detail. The first three chapters tell the evolution of the urban tramway network, from the first private companies concessionaires of the service, to the ATM up to the current GTT. The next three chapters are dedicated to the intercity network, the small but interesting trolleybus network and the history of the subway, from the projects of the sixties to the current construction.

Equally vast is the photographic documentation, with about 180 photographs, half of which are unpublished: line 3 at the triangular terminus in via Martorelli, line 6 at the terminus in piazza Carlo Felice, line 8 in via Bergamo. And then line 14 on the Isabella bridge, line 17 at the terminus in Piazza Modena, special line 27; the tramway to Orbassano in corso Unionesoviet, the maiden voyage on the Sassi-Superga, the first trolleybus of 1902... Added to these are over 30 figures with routes and maps of the network.

Last but not least an appendix full of curiosities: the color tables with which the lines have been identified for a long time, the list of loops and junctions to the unification of the networks, the night lines and the forced limitations to the tram service during the Second World War, and finally the works created for special events, the funicular, the monorail and the cable car.

It is a daily gesture, catching a tramcar to go to work, to school, to visit friends or relatives, but also to the cinema or theatre, to go shopping or to go home after a tiring or free day. But the tramcar we use everyday has a story, and its own point of view, which is worth knowing.
After the historical introduction, illustrated by old black&white and colour images, the book is divided into 3 thematic chapters: places and landscapes, professions and passions, memories and seasons which each group together 16 original and unpublished watercolor plates, accompanied by from as many compositions in free verse with a tram theme, with notes.

This book was created to bring the general public, not just enthusiasts, closer to the history of Turin's trams, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the inauguration of the first tramway in the city, and in Italy.

This book is the result of an extensive research on texts, specialized magazines, internet sites and original documents. It is a detailed historical and technical compendium on the “tram system” worldwide and follows its progressive development stages from the origins to the present day.
A 190-year-long history, beginning with the first horse-drawn tram in service in New York in 1832, continuing with the epopee of the electrification at the end of the nineteenth century and reaching its golden age in the first half of the twentieth century, period during which the maximum worldwide development occurred. Afterwards, the book covers the years of the great tram crisis in which the advent of mass motorization caused the progressive and insane dismantling of the networks, and it also deals with the "rebirth" of the modernized trams up to the contemporary electronically driven vehicles, keeping an eye on future developments.
The work is completed by a series of tables with the essential data of all the tram systems currently in operation in the world and by a very detailed analytical index, which transforms the book into a real “TRAM ENCYCLOPEDIA”.
