OGR TORINO aims at cultural creation, production and communication in the fields of Performing Arts, Music, Literature, Contemporary Art, Creativity and Design and pursues the goals of empowerment and social inclusion. It also promotes scientific and technological research in an international dimension. In 2013, the company OGR-CRT bought from RFI Sistemi Urbani, the OGR – Officine Grandi Riparazioni, one of the most important examples of 19th-century industrial architecture in Turin. The historic factory where trains were repaired was transformed into a true centre for creativity and innovation. To renovate the building it took 1,000 working days and over 100 million euros invested by Fondazione CRT. The OGR opened to the public on 30th September 2017 with the inauguration of the Cult Area, which was visited by over half a million people in its first two years. On 25th June 2019, the project was completed with the opening of the Tech Area for research and start-up acceleration.
