A one of a kind attraction: the Dora Park in Turin

The idea underpinning the renovation of the Dora Park was that of keeping the industrail plant visible (at least the remains of it) and to refurbish the whole complex with tools and equipment to allow visitors enjoy spending time there.

All art has been contemporary

Torino is one of the world capitals of contemporary art. From one side the city was in fact the birthplace of several artiistic movements, especially by the end of the 1800s throughout the 1900s, while from the other side the city is home to the largest contemporary art Museum in the Country, called "Castello di Rivoli".

An impressive view over the Alps

If you want to reach the highest tips of the Alps you must go to Italy (although the location of the highest cliff of Mount Blanc is still an open controversy between Italy and France): Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and the Pink Mount are all in Italy, (although they are accessible also from France and Swizterland)

Late foliage during lockdown

I am lucky enough to live close to the biggest park in town: the Mario Carrara Park (commonly referred to by the locals as "Pellerina"). Torino, in fact, has several parks, some of which are pretty big: The Valentino, The Rivers Junction, the Colonnetti Park, the Vallere, the Army Square and the Pellerina Park.

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.
