Monte dei Cappuccini in the fog

A climb of 15 minutes from Turin leads up to the Monte dei Cappuccini (240m) and the church of Santa Maria del Monte. Built in 1584 to a design by the architect Ascanio Vitozzi, the church adjoins a still-working Capuchin convent.

I often travel the Val di Susa (Susa Valley) and I can't help noticing more and more NO TAV signs.
The readers who are not interested in the NO TAV question will perhaps look upon these photographs as curious images.

NO TAV is a movement of the population of the valley against the construction of a railway line of high-speed train (TAV) Turin - Lyon, in the construction of the so-called Corridor 5 that should connect across eastern Europe (beginning from Kiev), with the major cities of western Europe (including Turin, Marseille, Barcelona to Lisbon).

The Dauphin Tower at Oulx

From the village of Oulx (1127m, Piedmont) you can reach the tower walking through a nice lane. The battlemented tower was part of the ancient Dauphin Castle the late evidences of which go back to 1499.
