The game was played on Monday following the death of Atalanta club doctor Walter Polini on December 8, and both teams came into the match in desperate need of the points.
Atalanta took an early lead through Cesare Natali, but Torino`s improved game after the break was rewarded with an equaliser courtesy of Luca Mezzano (pictured).
Natali headed the visitors in front on 14 minutes, a deserved lead after Atalanta had a goal disallowed for offside earlier in the game.
Torino came more into the game and Massimo Taibi preserved Atalanta`s lead with a fine save from Marco Ferrante.
The pressure eventually told and Taibi could do nothing about Mezzano`s penalty on the hour, after the dangerous Ferrante was hauled down in the box.
Vincenzo Sommese went close with a long range drive as Torino pressed for a winner, but the points were shared.
