Man, I really say I have visited Turin and I have visited Paris and both left me with the same feelings (at least in term of archtectural/urbanistical landscape, I admit in terms of services/shops/entertainments the two cities are way differents). Turin is soooo underrated, skipping the museums of France's capital, the two cities have somehow a very similar kind of XVII-XIX century's monumentality...

Well, Turin was for many centuries the capital (of a Duchy first and of a Kingdom later) that crossed the Alps and that was largely influenced by the French culture, both for geographical and political issues: most of the "Royal Madams" came from the French royal family and brought in Turin the latest trends of French architecture.

One of the brightest examples is the Valentino Castle in Turin, built for Christine of France:


After the Renaissance period (but mostly from the XVIIth century), Paris became for many countries the reference city for arts and architecture, as much as New York was at the end of the XXth. The taste for symmetrical squares, homogeneous streets and wide boulevards, probably born in Italy during the XVth century, re-developped in France and from there it spread in all Europe. This concept of city was absorbed in Turin more than in other cities.

What FaseREM said is all right. Turin is the most european city of italy before Trieste. Trieste, the most important port of Habsburg House, have the characteristic of a Mittle-european city and Turin, capital of Duchy of Savoy that included Savoy and part of Provence regions in France and Geneva in Switzerland, instead was influenced by the French culture

Unlike Trieste, the palazzos and churches of Turin I posted so far have typical Italian architectural appearance.
Each Italian state developed over the centuries its own style, yet some common features tell italian architecture from french style - even more than say italian from austrian baroque- and the shallow resemblance to France popping out to some Italian beholders is little more than urban legend.

Valentino Castle is unique in its plain frenchness indeed.

Turin is a masterpiece of baroque and completely italian, and it is fully european like every other italian city, not a single doubt about it.
what I actually meant is that Turin is almost always left out of the "big five" touristical italian city (rome, florence, venice, naples and milan) but it actually have a charme and an historical and artistical density that may be somehow matching a wonderful european capital like, for istance, paris. Never wanted to compare a baroque city with an haussmanian-neoclassical one, I was talkin exclusively about his attractiveness potential...

THEATRICAL SACRED CITY

Sacro Monte di Orta (Holy Mountain, Orta Lake)

Quote:
The Sacro Monte di Orta (literally: Sacred mountain of Orta) is a Roman Catholic devotional complex in Orta San Giulio (Piedmont) on the summit of a hill known as San Nicolao, facing Lake Orta. It is one of the 9 Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy, UNESCO World Heritage list.

Construction of the complex, dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, began in 1583. The project by the Capuchin friar Cleto da Castelletto Ticino involved 36 chapels, of which only 20 were built. Until 1630 they were mostly in the Mannerist style, but from the mid-17th century Baroque and other influences predominated. Construction ended in 1788.

Many of the artworks are of a high quality, some of the most highly thought of painters and sculptors of the period having been commissioned to produce them. The vegetation of the Sacred Mountain runs down to the shores of Lake Orta and was designed in line with ornamental criteria to match the architecture.
