City of art and architecture
If you’d told an Italian you were coming to Turin twenty years ago as a tourist, they’d have laughed. This was the business city, where factories churned out cars and computer giant Olivetti held sway. But today, the Turin attractions are reclaiming the city’s rightful heritage as a city of art. In 2008, it was even the world’s first capital of design. And now, even their compatriots are now realizing the wealth of art, artifacts and architecture in their nation’s baroque, first capital.
