  • It was a long time since I heard of Turin renewed, restructured, improved urban and qualitatively so taken by curiosity, after letting the military about 20 years ago, I decided to take a trip take a way from Milan to Sunday morning. Comfortable journey (apart from the fog) and 1 hour and 30 minutes I had parked in a car park near Piazza Castello. Are the 10:30 around the square is not filled, it will be because it is the day post derby della mole, because despite the Sun the air is cold and biting. Passed the first time we are moving to the rediscovery of the Centre, or rather my discovery and the discovery of my wife who had never visited the capital of Piedmont. We source a tourist map in the arcades of the square to the tourist office and decide to take via garibaldiessendo to the linga and pedestrianised. In fact the impression is that in these years something happened in Turin, there is a more open climate, years ago I remember people very introverted ... is pleasant stroll and shop even the clerks, bartenders are very well prepared with tourists (although we We are not your typical tourists but performed on the occasion of the trip out of town). Traveled all the way with due calmness became the lunch hour and you need to feed your baby (Manuel 2 years). We choose a coffee, snack, coffee, nothing particularly nice but warm and welcoming place. simple menu with pasta sauce for the baby and sumptuous serving of polenta and sausages for mom and dad, water, bread and coffee. €14 ... Very well! We continue the tour returning to Piazza Castello and then continue towards Piazza San Carlo, meanwhile take the opportunity to buy some chocolate here and there ... reasonable prices! At the end in Piazza San Carlo there is a great desire to hot chocolate and we opt for the nice café Torino, detail, a bit dated but perfectly evokes the past ... 2 hot chocolates and 1 cupcake for baby €16 (more...). After the Golden cioccalata we take Via Roma, follow it all back on our steps but circumnavigating the square standing in the arcades and enjoying coffee and pastry shop very intriguing! At the end we return on Via Garibaldi after visiting a nice little market where we buy at €10 7 sausages mixed flavors. Arriving in the evening, the child is tired and can't go to the Mole, keep for next time ...!!!

  • In the 16th century begins the story of the "modern" Turin, when became the capital of the Duchy of Savoy, which had previously had which venue Chambéry. In the 17th century, the city and the Duchy, begin to extend dominion over all the Piedmont and Liguria. In the 18th century, the Duchy becomes the Kingdom of Sardinia. In the 19th century, Piedmont and Savoy drive the process of unification of the Italian peninsula that culminates in the creation of the Kingdom of Italy. However, at that point, Turin must give its role as capital first in Florence and then Rome. In the 20th century, the city becomes with the Automobile Industry in the first place, but also with strong initiatives in other sectors, one of the 2 main poles of development of the country. Today the city is a bit disoriented, is looking for a future not yet delineated but with a strong historical and cultural heritage, of course, not second to any of the main cities of Italy. An important impulse came from the great renewal and tied to the recent Winter Olympics, which were given a more modern image to the city and a new subway line. From the standpoint of humoral, Turin is not sad, or, indeed, anything but monotonous. Its old town, steady performance and squared, inherited from the Romans, but confirmed and exalted by subsequent planning choices. Torino has significant monuments: Just to mention the Mole (symbol of the city) built as a modern temple to the Jewish community of the city and today houses the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, the most important in Europe. Of great interest are: the Royal Palace; the Cathedral with the chapel of the Holy Shroud; the Egyptian Museum, the new Museum of Oriental art with collections of European merit; the Sabauda Gallery; the Valentino Castle; The Carignano Palace, seat of the first Italian Parliament; the great mother of God, neoclassical Church; the massive Madama Palace site in the geographical center of the city, the splendid façade by Filippo Juvarra. The characteristic "tasty" are the arcades that develop for over 18 Km. Other cups of Turin are the Savoy residences since 1997 are deemed by UNESCO: Stupinigi Hunting Lodge, Agliè, Racconigi, Rivoli and Moncalieri, Reggia di Venaria and the Villa della Regina with the tightness of the herd. Belongs to the city until mark the soul, even a cultural heritage of the first magnitude, beginning with the Polytechnic University, among the best in Europe and the University which boasts traditions and philosophical research in political doctrines. Turin and publishing houses like the Utet, Turin: Bollati Boringhieri, SIX, Rosenberg & Sellier, Claudiana, Lattes, Loescher, Paravia and global issues. The founding years ' 30, write all major Italian composers: Cesare Pavese, Italo Calvino, Vitaliano Brancati, Primo Levi, Natalia Ginzburg, Beppe Fenoglio, and Italy all works and literatures. Is the master in Turin the confectionery industry. Turin is a hotbed of delicious and rich gastronomic treasures and thus, you eat well. Go there to ride is a unique experience!
