Torino is easily one of the most beautiful city in the world. I'm absolutely overwhelmed.

This is not a Baroque church, but I'd like that everybody take a look . The Barolo Chapel is a chapel never used, built up to repair the workers during rains and storms; when the Ceretto family in 1976 bought some cru wineyards, the chapel was included; in those years, during an exhibition in La Morra, they met the english artist David Tramlett and ask him to restore the chapel; he was so happy that involved in the matter also his friend Sol LeWitt.
Walkilng around in the area you will arrive in front of this particular colorful chapel, from which you look at a nice panorama toward La Morra and the wineyard area.

Hmmmm un'angolo di Messico nelle Langhe? Devo vederla!!! Grazie normy

Castle of Moncalieri

The first structure was a fortress built by Thomas I of Savoy around 1100 on a hill, to command the main southern access to Turin. In the mid-17th century Yolanda of Valois, wife of Duke Amadeus IX, turned it into a pleasure residence.

Architect Carlo di Castellamonte enlarged the construction substantially, and the interiors were redesigned by him and other local artists.
The castle was the site of the marriage between Maria Vittoria Francesca of Savoy to the Prince of Carignano. It was also the place where Maria Carolina of Savoy married Anthony of Saxony by proxy in 1781.
It was the scene of the death of Maria Antonietta of Spain in 1785; she was the wife of Victor Amadeus III of Sardinia. Victor Amadeus would later die there in 1796.

The castle was used extensively by the Savoyards, and was the first castle occupied in 1798 by the French armies, who retained it until 1814. Returned to Victor Emmanuel I of Sardinia and later to his distant nephew Charles Albert of Sardinia, Prince of Carignano, it became the residence of young family princes who studied here. King Victor Emmanuel II preferred it to the Royal Palace of Turin, and had numerous apartments furnished according to his tastes. In 1849 it was the seat of the famous proclaim in favour of Massimo D'Azeglio, and later was used by the Mother Queens and royal princesses.
Since 1921 it has been the home of the 1st Battalion of the Carabinieri, but the historical rooms can be freely visited.
On April 5, 2008, a fire broke out in the castle, damaging one of the towers and the hall of the proclaim.

Piazza Castello - TURIN -

Designed in 1564 by Vitozzi. It's lined with porticoes and is the real heart of the city: here and hereabouts stand the great buildings that have witnessed the development of the city, from the ancient Roman era to our days. In the middle of the square stands Palazzo Madama and on the side you could see The Royal Theatre, The Royal Palace , the Royal Library (that houses Leonardo da Vinci 's operas). In Piazza Castello (The Castle Square) begin the most important central streets, like Rome Street, Po Street, Garibaldi Street and Pietro Micca Street.
