Since 2005, in via Verdi, , just in front of the Palazzo Nuovo, stands the Marc Didou sculpture entitled "Echo".

The sculpture, made in bronze, depicts two faces, one up right, the other upside down.
Marc Didou, Breton sculptor, was inspired by the stone statue of Medusa which
guarded the ancient water cistern built in Roman times in Istanbul  and it is still functioning today.
In this Turin sculpture, water can not be seen, but feel, because by placing your ear to the statue, you can feels the murmur of an invisible stream
inside it, renders it mysterious and fascinating.
