Royal City of Turin

view of Mole Antonelliana

This is the photodairy of my short trip in Turin, a city that I never get tired to visit. Full of simbolic places and occult meanings, it’s also the only Italian city to preserve untouched a royal feeling.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Church of San Lorenzo, designed by Guarino Guarini

The doom of the church  shows something really weird for a church. The windows looks like monsters faces while screaming.

Entrance to the Royal Palace and centre of the city is considered to be Turin’s positive pole.

During Christmas time the city is enlightened with special decorations

    L’architettura di Torino è davvero affascinante, e purtroppo un po’ sottovalutata. Gli edifici Art nouveau sono davvero fantastici ..E le pastiglie Leone troppo stilose. Non avevo dubbi ti piacessero. Saluti

      Credo sia Torino ad essere un po’ sottovalutata. Città poco turistica, ma stupenda, a mio avviso l’unica davvero esteticamente europea in Italia.
