Turin, city of cinema
Turin loves cinema so much that it has dedicated a museum to it, inside the most important building in the city,
the Mole Antonelliana. After all, cinema in Italy was born in Turin, with the very first
screening of a
film, in March 1896, just a couple of months after the Lumiere brothers, in Paris. Do you remember it?
do we. But it must have been liked a lot, in fact after a few months someone immediately transformed it
business and here is the first screening with a paying audience always in Turin.
We could talk at length about how the history of cinema has developed alongside the history of Turin, but after
all, we are sure that sooner or later they will make us a film about it. So just wait!
Turin, city of magic
Turin is an esoteric city. Which means… even we didn't really understand it, but it is considered a
city, a place where positive and negative energies alternate, ying and yang, the light
side and the dark
side of the force.
Maybe that's why we are considered extremely balanced, but don't just believe it: we'll show you.
The myth and
the legend chase each other along the streets of this city and so this would be one of the vertices of two magical
triangles: White Magic, together with Prague and Lyon, and on the other Black
Magic, with London and San
Only the Death Star, Darth Vader and lightsabers are missing now! But if you are curious, we challenge you to look
for esoteric references and symbols among the monuments and streets of Turin. Which side
do you take?
Torino Bianca (nope, we're not mentioning our Head of HOC, since Bianca means white) or Torino Nera
Turin, city of chocolate
In Turin we like to eat, we are really really greedy (and you know which capital sin goes hand in
the gluttony? ;-)) In the city and in the surrounding area we offer some of the best
Italian food and
wine excellences, such as truffles, Barolo but, above all,
Did you know that Nutella was born right here?! Actually, it's not - it was born in
Alba, just a few kms
away. But for a great chocolaty experience that enhances the pleasure and makes your endorphins dance the
samba you have to stuff yourself with gianduiotti!
Gianduia is a type of chocolate paste born in Turin in 1806. Its creation is attributed to the
chocolatiers: Napoleon declared an embargo in Turin for all English products and our fellows
cocoa beans with the hazelnuts Tonda Gentile delle Langhe: that's how this lingot-shaped chocolate was
Just think that even Fiat in one of his logos will be inspired by the gianduiotto from which it
