Dettagli

‘There are local tales that easily become legends. It is not that they are not true in the first instance; but as they are told by one person to another, they slowly lose their factual basis and acquire more imaginary details, becoming more like a myth’. These are the opening lines of a delightful collection of stories and curiosities from the history of the city - history to cherish, because it will make you experience the spirit of Turin and his citizens. It is a valuable guide for sophisticated, demanding visitors who want to know what they are looking at – as it is essential for the Torinesi who never have enough of the history of the city they live in. A unique and captivating book about the life of Turin: the city’s artists and designers, the hydroplanes on the river Po, the Wild West staged in a square, the first public facilities, the houses of ill repute, the funicular railway... For those who want to know how Turin has become the enchanting jewel it is today.
