Pinerolo is a town and comune in north-western Italy, 40 kilometres southwest of Turin on the river Chisone.
In the Middle Ages, the town of Pinerolo was one of the main crossroads in Italy, and was therefore one of the principal fortresses of the dukes of Savoy. Its military importance was the origin of the well-known military school that still exists today. The fortress of Fenestrelle is nearby.
