Po and Dora



In the piazzetta CLN (town center), these large marble fountains (1937) by Umberto Baglioni represent the two main rivers that flow through Turin: the Po and the Dora.

These bring to mind the Art Deco works at Rockefeller Center in New York City. The frank physicality and the pure strength are wonderful.

Due staute maestose come lo sono i due fiumi che maestosi corrono per miglie e miglie a valle.

Buona Domenica Pietro!
