Old vs. contemporary. What’s the best architecture?

Torino is a blessed city. Most of the conteporary architectures are well inserted within the city context and allow keeping the original elegance by also experimenting contemporary and innovative architecture.

Where to find the “Liberty” style.

The period spanning from 1880 and 1914 was a special time for Europe: industry was flourishing, wealth started growing massively and a new social class arose: the Bourgeoisie, mostly composed by new entrepreneurs who started competing with the old aristocracy by building nice residences and Palazzi and by calling the services of artists who were experimenting new methods, tools and artistic features. The aim was to show off their wealth by deplying a massive display of beauty in all its forms.
