Turin, 15th August 2009



The Santuario della Consolata (1670), dedicated to Maria Consolatrice (Mary the Comforter and protector of Turin), one of the city's most splendid examples of the baroque.



The Piazza della Consolata, with the well-known café Al Bicerin (1873), opposite the church. In this café you can enjoy the delicious Torinese bicerin, an uplifting mixture of hot chocolate, espresso and cream.




Piazza Solferino
In the second picture, one of the futuristic twin buildings, called Atrium Torino, which house a large exhibition space over two floors.

What a beautiful city. I like the way that futuristic building's shape is similar to the pavement in design. Lovely.

Oggi giorno solo così in questa atmosfera irreale e rarefatta si riesce a percepire e a vivere tutta la bellezza architettonica e non di una città...

Ciao Pietro!

Ciao Pietro, buona giornata, grazie per quello che hai scritto, mi fa un pò arrossire ricevere dei complimenti..in realtà sono emozioni percepite e sentite, forse è per questo che risultano immediate. Certo saper scrivere come un bravo "artista della penna", mi piacerebbe molto, intanto mi accontento di leggere...
Oggi credo si stia meglio in montagna, giornata troppo afosa.

Very sharp and clear photos ! I can see everything in details, beautiful. Love the chatting black and white sisters, lol !

Grazie Pietro per le tue gentili parole lasciate sul mio blog.
Mia nonna era di Asti, ma io non sono mai stata a Torino, che vergogna! Amo i cibi e i vini di quelle meravigliose terre, per non parlare del cioccolato. Ne parlo spesso nei miei post.

Torna quando vuoi, c'è sempre tanta roba buona sul fuoco, ottime bottiglie e bella compagnia x fare due chiacchere.

Ciao,

Hi Pietro,
Just dropping by to appreciate more those beautiful places and to say thank you for your nice comment on my post.

With my second visit I can observe the two nuns talking and I liked very much this pic.

PS: I changed the tittle of my current post, now it's "Walking on Water". Lol!

What a lovely series of photos. The first one is so magnificent, but the second with the sisters just has something to say. And the empty sidewalks and streets. Really all are wonderful.
Prospero
Pietro, I love the cobblestone streets, and the irrepressibly charming atmosphere of this area.

Oooh my God! What a fabolus architecture and places to visit within a post that I'm impressed a lot to be able to take a flight and visit this state, Pietro! The Basilica Santuario della Consolata.. questo il vero cuore spirituale e io la vorrei visitare, un giorno ci andro'. My poor heart can stop if you go to tell us other splendid examples -so please don't:)

A great post it was. Wishes for a nice weekend to you.
