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.
Although I understand there is an Art behind graphic design, I believe it should be limited to minimal adjustments when photos are concerned. From my point of view, an excessive digital manipulation of a picture turn a place or a landscape into a destination which does not exist and makes our expectations grow beyond reality.
Torino is nowadays the third or fouth largest city in the Country (depending if you consider the hinterland or not) and underwent a dramatic and successful change in the past 20 years, turning its local economomy from industry based to tourism based after the XXth Winter Olympics, held in the city in 2006.
The first snowstorms happened on the Alps, which are very visible even from the city center, especially the Monviso, which is an amazing landmark for us being shaped as a perfect pyramid which stands out among the major mounts of the Alps.
Tropea is located along the Tirrenian coast on a rocky spur which overlooks the whole Gulf of St. Euphemia and the bluest sea. On clear days, like the one I have been so lucky to experience, you can see also the island of Stromboli, in a distance, one of the Eolian Islands
On my last day in Palermo, the capital of Sicily, I decided to go visit the UNESCO heritage sites of the city, listed under the title "The Arab-Norman sites of Palermo, Monreale and Caflù". In fact it's not a single site but a complex of buildings located in 3 different cities, all of which dating back to the Arab and the Norman domination of the Island.
I finally went down to Palermo. I lived my whole trip to Sicily in anticipation for this. I had great expectations about Palermo, especially after its Arab-Norman Cathedral was listed by Unesco among the world heritage sites.
