As of May 31st 2010, the City of Torino extends the ZTL area which boundaries become those of the former ZTL Ambientale. As far as I understand, no-entry hours from 7:30AM through 10:30AM except for special permission holders in the green (and brown) area of the map in the photo.
In recent years, the city administrators adopted and enforced a plan to reduce motor vehicles pollutants. Kind of questionable though on how effective it can be.
Two areas in downtown Torino were designated for such plan, these are named ZTL ("Zona a Traffico Limitato" or Limited Traffic Area) and ZTL Ambientale (Environmental). The latter has a greater extent and even locals have interpretation difficulties for rules, days and hours for motor traffic bans. It's something that also has to do with the vehicle category. Not just type, but also the emissions classification it falls into accordingly with the year of production.
Should you drive or ride in town, unless it's a zero-emission vehicle or certain eco-friendly types, be aware that you might not be allowed to enter the greater environmental ZTL - green color in the map - while the core ZTL is only allowed to public vehicles or special permit holders at all time. A camera system is in place at every point of entry of such area and offenders are fined.
In any case, be also aware that downtown parking availability is extremely scarce and expensive.
Decent map clarity, hours and updated general information should be available through the links herebelow.
