The city of Turin has a thousand facets, just as this location boasts a thousand stories. Most of all, Turin is the place where history was made and where mystery resides.
Turin is the first capital of the Kingdom and home of the industrial and mechanical revolution Italy experienced after WWII. It is a cosmopolitan city (the Mole Antonelliana was supposed to become a Jewish temple), the crossroads between North and South, both as far as its vicinity to the major passes is concerned, as well as for its recent history, and also for its artistic tradition, epitomised in the Egyptian Museum.
Turin is a fast city, with its sights set on progress and the future. It is always ready to take on and indeed overcome the challenges ahead, as it did in winter 2006.
The Winter Olympics did in fact bring Turin back to the public eye, presenting it as a travel destination to be rediscovered and that would not be disappointing.
