Großartig, mein Protektor!
Great shots (as usual in your threads).

Seems that I definitely have to go to Turin in the near future.

Milan and Turin don't seem to be in Italy.

Why is that? For me every picture screams classical, Italianate, which is very Italy!

For the architecture, perhaps, yes, but I don't know. Milan and Turin seem detatched from the rest of Italy. They're not as colourful and cheerful as Southern Italy. Instead they look more advanced and European (with the utmost respect for the other regions of the country).

P.S. My brother lived in Rome for a year and many Romans used to say that Milan had few to do with the rest of Italy.

In some way every city in Italy has few to do with the rest of Italy

What has Venice to do with Palermo? And Florence with Naples? Or Genoa with Rome?

Landscape and tradition in Italy are so various that is even difficult to define just 'one way' to be Italian

Eating pizza, driving a Ferrari or a Lambo, playing mandoline, wearing elegant, adoring mum, harassing every woman 14/50 y-o., making offers people can't refuse, and the like.

Forgotten anything?

Yes, Southern Italy is more colourful and cheerful. But why do you make the assumption Northern Italy is less Italian than Southern Italy?

Turin and Milan look completely Italian to me (Milan even more so than Turin).

That's the impression I got. I can't do nothing about it. For me Northern Italy (especially Milan) does look and feel less Italian to me than the rest.

The fact is that the Southern parts of this country (including Rome ) are usually over-represented to the detriment of the North, to the point of being considered the touchstone of Italianness while this isn't really the case. Probably they are just considered more charming, who knows.

Very nice photos of two cities I'd really love to visit (contrary to Bratislava )!!!

Is there some kind of observation deck on the top of the giant 19th-century-tower in Turin (which looks totally awesome btw)? And if so, have you been up there? And if so again, did you take any photos up there?
