Description Fiat proving ground, built on the roof of Lingotto. This factory is 5 floors high and approx. 500 m long. It was built in 1920s and it was abandoned in early 1980s, even if it was under used for a long time. Now it has been converted into a commercial area and exhibition center, and I think that the track has never been used.
