Dear Visitor, welcome to Italy! 2019 is the year in which Italy has been overflowing with celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the man who more than any other represents Italy throughout the world. Andrea Jarach Several cities including Milan, Florence and Publisher ® Rome are hosting a series of special events. Where The full program of Italian exhibitions and events honouring Leonardo throughout 2019 and the beginning of 2020 can be found on the pages of Where®. We invite you to discover the country that gave life to the person considered the world over as one of history’s greatest thinkers. While visiting Italy you’ll understand why only Italy could have given birth to this man whose creative mind shaped the intellectual, social, cultural, and political facets of European life from the fifteenth century onwards. Leonardo made an indelible contribution to philosophy, nature, medicine and art. All that now remains is for us to look for the traces left by the enigmatic Leonardo. You’ll find them in whatever part of Italy you’re visiting. If you happen to find them, please share your comments, with your photo, on our social media. By the beginning of the next year, we’d like to collect a gallery of the friends of Italy. Happy hunting!

MOLE ANTONELLIANA A landmark building of Turin since 1889, it was purchased by the municipality who decided to make it a monument to Italian unification. Standing at a height of 167.5m, at the time of its construction it was the highest brick building in Europe. Built in an eclectic style, the Mole has a squat square base topped by a large dome with a spire. You can ascend to the panoramic observation platform either by elevator or on foot by climbing its 573 steps. Since 2000, it has hosted the National Museum of Cinema. 1 MUSEO EGIZIO Founded in 1824, Turin’s Egyptian Museum is the oldest Egyptian museum in the world and the second in terms of the value and quality of its treasures outside of Cairo. In 2006, during Turin’s Winter Olympics, the museum was re-modelled by Oscar-winning set designer Dante Ferretti. It houses more than 37,000 4  W H E R E T U R I N I D E C E M B E R 2019

headquarters of the first Subalpine Senate. Its name refers to ‘Madame Royale’ Christine of France, who took up residence here in 1600. The view of the city from the Panoramic Tower is spectacular. 4

MUSEI REALI The residence of the Savoys until 1865, it is now owned by the Italian government. The museum tour comprises a 3km route spread over 30,000 sq.m. and 7 hectares of Royal Gardens. In 1563, Duke Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy moved the capital of the duchy from Chambéry to Turin, marking the beginning of a major urban transformation and the enrichment of the dynastic collections, which now include artifacts from the prehistoric era to the present time. 3

PARCO DEL VALENTINO Located on the banks of the Po River, and spread over 550,000 sq.m., this is the city’s most popular park. Its interior houses numerous treasures including the Castello del Valentino, a UNESCO world heritage site and a part of the circuit of the Royal Residences of Turin and Piedmont, the Medieval Village and Castle, and the Botanical Gardens (1729). 5

PALAZZO MADAMA Situated in the centre of piazza Castello, it has always been a reference point in the city, from Roman times to 1848, when it became the

VILLA DELLA REGINA The summer country residence of the House of Savoy, it was built at the beginning of the 17th century as a court vineyard. It became known as Villa della Regina (literally the Queen’s Villa) when

The old Carpano plants, lying adjacent to the Lingotto complex, are now occupied by ‘Eataly’s’ vast food market. 10

MUSEO NAZIONALE DELL’AUTOMOBILE The Car Museum (MAUTO) was opened in 1960 and is one of the oldest car museums in the world. The semi-circular building overlooking the River Po acts as a prelude to the three floors of the collection featuring a spectacular layout designed by François Confinio, who also designed the exhibition space of the Museum of Cinema. 11 9

ALLIANZ JUVENTUS STADIUM Designed to host up to 41,507 spectators, this is the sixth largest stadium in Italy. It is owned by the Juventus Football Club whose home matches have been played here since 2011. An architectural symbol, it is one of the most avantgarde facilities in the world. The J-Museum, the official football museum of the ‘bianconero’ team is hosted inside the stadium. 12

King Vittorio Amedeo II gifted it to his future bride in 1714. Don’t miss a visit to this magnificent residence, distinguished by the remains of its original 18th century decorations and furnishings, and its Italianate gardens. Villa della Regina is a part of the circuit of the Royal Residences of Turin and Piedmont, a UNESCO world heritage site. 6 TEATRO REGIO The Regio is one of the most important Italian theatres on the European scene, offering an action-packed program of opera and ballet. It was designed by Filippo Juvarra and inaugurated in 1740. Destroyed by a fire in 1936, and rebuilt in 1973 by Turinese architect Carlo Mollino, the only part of the original building that still remains is its façade, now a UNESCO world heritage site. Its unusual gate, named ‘Odissea Musicale’ (Musical Odyssey) is by Umberto Mastroianni. 7

BASILICA DI SUPERGA Situated on the hills surrounding Turin, it offers a breathtaking view. It was built as a thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary for Turin’s deliverance from the French siege (1706) and designed by Filippo Juvarra. One of the most picturesque ways of accessing it is by the Rack Tramway, which rattles the 3km up the hillside. 13

VIA PO PROMENADE A stroll beneath the typical Torinese porticoes in via Po, packed with shops and cafés, is an absolute must. From here, you can access Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the largest square in the city. The square ends at the Vittorio Emanuele I bridge, which connects it to the square of the church of the Gran Madre di Dio (1830), renowned for its imposing pantheon-like shape. 8 PIAZZA SAN CARLO Also known as ‘the drawing room’ of the city, it was commissioned by Marie Christine of France in true Parisian style with seemingly endless porticoes housing fashion boutiques, and an equestrian statue - the ‘Caval d’Brons’ – of Duke Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy at its centre. 9 LINGOTTO This complex of buildings built in 1916, based on a project by Matté Trucco to house the FIAT

REGGIA DI VENARIA REALE Located inside the Park of La Mandria, this is a Baroque-style complex built in the mid-17th century as a glorified hunting lodge for Carlo Emanuele II. Particularly worthy of note are the Grand Gallery, the Chapel of St. Hubert, the Galleria di Diana, the 18th century Scuderie Juvarrine and the Citroniera, now used to host events. It is a part of the circuit of the Royal Residences of Turin and Piedmont. 14 PALAZZINA DI CACCIA DI STUPINIGI Built in Baroque style in 1729, and only 10km from Piazza Castello, with its French garden, Stupinigi was the royal family’s favourite place for celebrations and events. At the beginning of the 20th century, Queen Margherita of Savoy took up permanent residence here. In 1919, Stupinigi became the headquarters of the Furniture Museum. It is a part of the circuit of the Royal Residences of Turin and Piedmont, a UNESCO world heritage site. 15 w w w.wh e re t rave l e r. com  5


WHERE NOW | LANDMARK

A Royal Residence Built in the 16th century, Castello del Valentino is − located in the green heart of Turin’s 19th century park, overlooking the banks of the Po River. A surburban riverside residence in the 1500s, it reached its height of splendour under Christine of France, who chose it as her ‘maison de plaisance’, enlarging it according to French tastes and refurbishing the opulent decorations of the rooms on the piano nobile. Together with Villa della Regina, it was one of the favourite residences of duchesses, princesses and queens, while the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi and the Reggia di Venaria were built respectively as a hunting lodge and a country residence. The castles of Rivoli and Moncalieri were originally built as fortresses, but later transformed into welcoming ‘places of delight’.

− −


CASTLE OF VALENTINO Over time, the Castello del Valentino was used for − different purposes: a veterinary school during the French period, a barracks in 1824, a school of application for engineers in 1859, and finally the headquarters of the Politecnico di Torino’s Faculty of Architecture. An area of 27,000 square meters located to the left of the castle is occupied by a Botanical Garden. Founded in 1729 by Vittorio Amedeo, it houses numerous rare plants and green houses, a herbarium and a library containing ancient botanical prints. Since 1997, the castle has been inscribed in the World Heritage of Humanity list as part of the serial UNESCO site ‘Residences of the Royal House of Savoy’. The castle can be visited every first, second and third Saturday of the month. castellodelvalentino.polito.it

THE CITY OF LIGHTS When you talk about festivities in Turin you have to mention ‘Luci d’Artista’, the festival of illuminated installations that light up the city from 29 October to 12 January. This city-wide event is an integral part of the ‘Speciale Autunno di Contemporary Art Torino+Piemonte’ cultural programme, and features a special itinerary showcasing different poetic interpretations of works created by Italian and international artists, who share a love of light. Luci d’Artista is currently celebrating its 22nd edition, with a total of 25 illuminated installations, of which 15 are located in the city centre. It has also been enhanced with a new open-air masterpiece, an unprecedented illuminated artwork titled ‘Miracola’ created by artist Roberto Cuoghi, located in Piazza San Carlo to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. When creating this artwork, the artist drew inspiration from Leonardo’s theories on the alternation of light and shadows. Every hour, on the hour, beginning at 9pm until late at night, the artwork uses a mechanism that dims all the lights in the square, creating a luminous choreography that immerses passersby in total darkness for five seconds, generating a feeling of tension and expectation. If you happen to find yourself in the square at this time, make sure to turn off your phone in order to enjoy the experience to the full! Other highlights at this year’s edition include Joseph Kosuth’s ‘Double Passage (Turin)’, which returns to the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I, and ‘Planetarium’ by Carmelo Giammello, which will once again be set up in via Roma. Other must-see installations in the city include ‘Cosmometries’ by Mario Airò in piazza Carignano, featuring symbolic, geometric diagrams projected onto the floor of this small square; ‘Flying Carpet’ by Daniel Buren in piazza Palazzo di Città; ‘Kingdom of Flowers: the Cosmic Nest of All Souls’ by Nicola De Maria in piazza Carlina, which transforms the street lights into luminous flowers; ‘The Vertical Baroque Garden’ by Richi Ferrero in via Alfieri; ‘The energy that unites expands in the blue’ by Marco Gastini in Galleria Umberto I; ‘Migration (Climate Change)’ by Piero Gilardi in Galleria San Federico, featuring 12 silhouettes of pelicans attached to a vertically suspended net; ‘Culture=Capital’ by Alfredo Jaar in piazza Carlo Alberto; ‘Luì and the Art of Going Down to the Woods’ by Luigi Mainolfi in via Lagrange, the story of a fairytale that extends like a sequence of illuminated sentences, and ‘The Flight of Numbers’ by Mario Merz on the Mole Antonelliana, which illuminates one of Turin’s landmarks with the Fibonacci sequence (www.lucidartista.com). This year will also see the return of guided tours on board a panoramic City Sightseeing® Torino bus. The ‘Luci d’artista special tour’ offers visitors closeup views of the best installations scattered across the city. Guided tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays from 30 November to 6 January in English, French and Italian (www.city-sightseeing.it/it/torino)

Here, in addition to purchasing souvenirs or a special gift to take home with you, you can sample some of the region’s Christmas specialties. The Christmas market in Piazza Santa Rita draws inspiration from traditional Northern European markets and hosts wooden chalets selling decorations, gifts, small objet d’art and enogastronomic products from Piedmont, and other Italian regions (from 29 November to 23 December). Move on towards the vibrant Borgo Dora district, where the courtyard, better known as the ‘Maglio’ that once housed an old military foundry, and the piazza lying behind it, host two of the city’s most enchanting Christmas markets.

Amidst traditional products, sweet treats, mulled wine and handcrafted decorations, the more daring among you can showcase your skills on the open-air ice rink that’s located just a short distance from the stalls, and is open to the public throughout the festive season. Apropos Christmas markets, you need only head to Piazza Castello to immerse yourself in a fairytale-like atmosphere, with small, beautifully decorated wooden chalets located in the shadow of Palazzo Madama and Casaforte degli Acaja, where local products take centre stage. The beauty of the piazza is further enhanced by the presence of an enormous, 20-meter high Christmas tree. The lighting of the tree coincides with the opening of the first window of the Advent calendar created by Turin’s Teatro Regio, based on drawings by animation studio Lastrego&Testa and sketches by renowned illustrator and set designer Emanuele Luzzati. Every day, at 6pm, one of the calendar’s huge windows is opened by the firemen of the Comando Provinciale di Torino. The striking wooden nativity scene in Parco Valentino’s Medieval Town is also the work of Emanuele Luzzati. The nativity comprises traditional nativity scenes figures interspersed with characters from well-known fairytales that will appeal to young and old alike. Immerse yourself fully in the festive atmosphere and take a stroll through the narrow streets of the town leading to Piazza del Melograno, the beating heart of the nativity scene.

All the magic of Turin

According to legend, and together with Prague and Lyon, Turin is part of a triangle of white magic, and of black magic with London and San Francisco. As a result, it finds itself in the midst of an ongoing struggle between positive and negative forces and, according to experts, is crisscrossed by powerful force fields. (C.Z.)

T

urin is a city of mystery, magic and legend. Its ‘magical’ significance is attributed to its geographical position, along the 45th parallel, where the Po and Dora rivers meet. More importantly, it creates the vertices of two triangles, a triangle of white magic and a triangle of black magic. It would appear that numerous points of the Piedmont capital, highlighted by esoteric and Masonic symbols, are crisscrossed by mysterious force fields. This is why the city offers tourists numerous tours to discover these places. These include Torino Occulta, a tour dedicated to black magic and the occult arts.

This statue, which stands in front of the Church of Gran Madre di Dio, shows the woman holding a chalice in her left hand, a symbol that represents the presence of the Holy Grail in Turin (somewhere.it – www.musement.com). A slightly different take on the subject is the Torino Noir tour. This evening walking tour allows you to delve into the darker side of the city by visiting the ancient Church of the Misericordia, and the underground prisons of the oldest court in the city, led by a guide who will enthrall you with stories about criminals, the plague and the sinister practices of witchcraft that took place in the Quadrilatero Romano (www.getyourguide.it).

Discovering Piedmont Avant-garde wineries, a legacy of world-class cuisine and marvelous landscapes. All of these things have earned the areas of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato UNESCO World Heritage status, resulting in an elite tourist destination. BY CHIARA ZACCARELLI

T

his is UNESCO’s official reason for adding the wine-growing regions of the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato to its world heritage list in 2014. “An exceptional living testimony to the historical tradition of grape growing and winemaking processes, of a social context, and a rural economy based on viticulture. The vineyards of the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato are an outstanding example of man’s interaction with his natural surroundings.” This area is protected as a ‘cultural heritage’ which is symbolic, because man has managed to shape it, giving it the unique characteristics that it boasts today. In this area, the vineyards of several of the world’s most famous wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Asti Spumante and Barbera, stretch as far as the eye can see, in a display of changing colours and softly rolling hills.

Although geographically the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are neighbouring regions, they all have different morphologies, and cultural characteristics. The region’s varied landscape provides fertile soil for an impressive array of local specialties: from superlative wine, to the prized white truffles of Alba, porcini mushrooms and IGP hazelnuts. Located just an hour’s drive from Turin, these regions can be accessed by car (several of the larger centres can also be reached by train). Other options include one of the many organized wine and tasting tours on offer. Ask your concierge.

Built in the 13th century and currently home to the headquarters of the ‘Cavour Regional Enoteca’, the castle, in addition to stocking several of the region’s finest Doc and Docg wines, also hosts the interesting Langhe Museum (www.castellogrinzane.com). Other mustsees include the Castle of Barolo and its surrounding town, which gives its name to the most famous Italian red wine and is thought to date back to mediaeval times. The town is home to WiMu, a unique wine museum that takes visitors on an immersive journey through the history of viticulture via light, film and installations. The museum is set over three floors of the village’s stunning medieval castle, and the tour includes a visit to the building’s panoramic terrace and its ancient wine cellars (www.wimubarolo.it).

In addition to other specialties, the area is renowned for its famous three-lobed hazelnut, boasting ‘Protected Geographical Indication’ status and used to make various sweet treats. If you want to purchase these tantalizing specialties and see how they’re made, visit Giovanni Cogno’s artisanal workshop (www.giovannicogno.it). Lastly, an absolute ‘must’ for lovers of medieval history and architecture is a visit to the Castle of Serralunga d’Alba, a beautifully preserved Gothic stronghold (www. castellodiserralunga.it).

In addition to informing visitors about the history, landscapes and art of Monferrato, the museum also organizes initiatives and events targeted at highlighting the historical characteristics of the place. For some years now, the museum has undertaken the arduous but worthwhile task of taking an inventory of the ‘infernot’ in the area. ’Infernot’ are dark, airless underground spaces, carved out in stone, located beneath houses and cellars that, in some instances, are real underground tunnels. These works of arts, carved and modeled by artists, were either used to store bottles of wine, or as pantries, because the temperature inside them remains constant. Several of these old ‘infernot’ are open for public viewing, especially during the ‘vendemmia’ (grape harvest) or on special occasions (www.ecomuseopietracantoni. it). If you feel like sampling some wine, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Although the majority of local wines are red and full-bodied, like Barbera, Grignolino and Freisa, you’ll also find a good selection of whites, including Moscato. An absolute ‘must’ for wine connoisseurs visiting the area is the Enoteca Regionale di Vignale Monferrato. Located in a magnificent 17th century ‘palazzo’, the Enoteca is a great place to taste and purchase some of the area’s best local wines (www. enotecadelmonferrato.it).

Since it requires hardly any ageing, it’s eaten fresh year-round and traditionally served raw, usually as an antipasto, or cooked in a sauce that is used to dress ‘tajarin’ (typically fresh Piedmontese pasta) or polenta (www. salsicciadibra.it).

Food glossary From a gastronomic viewpoint, the region of Piedmont boasts some of Italy’s finest, most diverse traditional foods. It is therefore no surprise that the world-famous ‘Slow Food’ association, an international, non-profit organization committed to giving food back its proper value, was born here. It is also here that the Italian University of Gastronomic Sciences, the first, and possibly only, ‘university of taste’ in the world, was established.

VITELLO TONNATO This classic ‘antipasto’ of Piedmont cuisine is made from poaching the ‘girello’ cut of ‘Fassona’ veal (a prized Piemontese breed of veal) in a stock with aromatic herbs and white wine, sliced thinly and served cold with a traditional sauce made from tuna fish, egg yolks, capers, extra virgin olive oil, white wine, lemon juice, salt and pepper. BONET Bonet, pronounced bunet, is a soft, rich, deliciously old-fashioned dessert that can be eaten with a spoon. Bonet is made from

PIEDMONTESE MIXED FRY This uniquely rich local specialty of Piedmont consists of a combination of fried liver, lungs, brain, sweetbreads, liver veins, a slice of veal, sausage, sweet semolina, amaretti biscuits and apples, accompanied by pan-fried carrots or mixed vegetables. Not a dish for the faint-hearted.

AGNOLOTTI DEL PLIN These small filled ‘pouches’ are made with a thin sheet of dough, stuffed with a filling of braised meat (usually a mixture of beef, veal or pork) and Swiss chard, dressed with the pan juices of the braised meat, or butter and sage. The name ‘plin’ derives from the regional dialect for ‘pinch’ because to form each agnolotto you pinch the two sheets of pasta together.

sugar, eggs, milk, cocoa, rum and dry amaretti biscuits. An unusual feature of this recipe is that it’s baked in a Bain Marie in the oven. A Bain Marie, or hot water bath, is a slow, natural culinary technique that is used to cook delicate foods, over a low temperature, using the steam the Bain Marie creates. It preserves the softness of the dessert and facilitates the formation of a delicious crust on its surface.

BAGNA CAUDA This typical winter specialty consists of a sauce made from garlic, extra virgin olive oil and anchovies, to which butter, milk and chopped nuts can also be added. Bagna Cauda is served in a terracotta pot and used as a dip for raw or cooked seasonal vegetables. If, on the one hand, it encourages conviviality, on the other, especially if you’ve overdone the garlic, you might find people avoiding you because you reek of it!

Our aim is to make our shop a reference point, a sophisticated, convivial space designed for customers, who wish to browse without pressure and discover the value of the art of goldsmithing and watchmaking, under the guidance of our attentive, expert staff,” explained Giorgio Damiani, vice-president of the Damiani Group, which acquired the Rocca chain in 2008.

The Group’s new venture is deeply rooted in an important chapter of history: its founder, Alberto Rocca, opened its first boutique at the end of the 18th century. In the past, the boutique was distinguished by its illustrious clientele, including patrons like Giuseppe Verdi, Gabriele D’Annunzio and Luigi Pirandello, in addition to Rocca’s close working relationship with the Royal House of Savoy, which relied on the expertise of Rocca’s skilled craftsmen to choose the best jewelry and watches. >> Rocca 1794 Via Roma, 290.

Top Brands A stroll through the streets of the centre, amidst elegant royal porticoes (that extend for 18km across the city), and squares embellished with sumptuous architecture, is a unique opportunity to soak up the city’s authentic charm. It’s also a great destination for shopping enthusiasts. In the heart of the city, often referred to as ‘little Paris’, you’ll find the best fashion brands. In particular, the austere and elegant via Roma and the parallel via Lagrange, do justice to the exquisite Italian and international fashions on display. Alternately, a reference point for young, trendy fashion is via Garibaldi – one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe – which runs from Piazza Castello to Piazza Statuto. The ideal place for lovers of antiques and vintage items is via Po, which links Piazza Castello to Piazza Vittorio Veneto. ASPESI— www.aspesi.com Open Mon 3.30pm-7.30pm; Tues-Sat 10.30am-7.30pm.

NEW OPENING

The sweet side of Turin Just over a year after opening his Milanese pastry shop, Iginio Massari has launched a new urban oasis dedicated to haute patisserie in the heart of Turin. A must-visit destination offering numerous tasty innovations. By Giulia Minero

B

esides having received 300 international career awards, including the title of ‘Best Pastry Chef in the World’ at the World Pastry Stars 2019 contest, Iginio Massari has recently added a new success to his record of achievements, with the opening of his first pastry shop in the shadow of the Mole, just steps from Piazza San Carlo. Based on a new formula that visualizes a series of pastry shops that differ from one another, and are created to mirror the distinctive traits of their city and the building housing them, the Galleria Iginio Massari is a multi-functional space. It is open throughout the day, and houses an open-plan workshop in the basement, plus two rooms where you can sample and purchase Massari's sweet treats. Its elegant spaces feature dim lighting and 34  W H E R E T U R I N I D E C E M B E R 2019

furnishings, boasting an indefinable retro allure in shades of antique pink and petroleum green. Here, lovers of sweet treats will find more than 12 types of products, ranging from cakes to fruit jellies, croissants and bite-sized pastries, plus the signature Dolce Torino, a unique gianduia chocolate plumcake created exclusively to honor the city of Turin and its culinary tradition. Particular attention is paid to packaging, curated by the Robilant Associati agency, and re-invented, to echo the words of his daughter Debora Massari, in a ‘pop version’. >> Galleria Iginio Massari www.iginiomassari.it Piazza C.L.N, 232 T: 011 4249343.

The chef’s creative yet simple cuisine features a combination of classic and exotic fare, premium-quality ingredients and seasonal products that will delight your taste buds.

With tables spilling out onto the square in warmer months, this delightful locale in the heart of the Quadrilatero Romano, serves Fassona beef tartare, ‘vitello tonnato’, ‘tajerin’ (a thin version of tagliatelle), ‘agnolotti’ and a vegetable-based Piedmontese antipasto which includes tomatoes, anchovies and peppers in a sauce, accompanied by a great selection of wines.

A harmonious combination that pays tribute to customers, chefs, breeders, farmers and wine growers. Its cheeses, sourced from the best local producers, with a few forays into the rest of Italy, France or Britain for a taste of Stilton, deserve a separate mention. Open Mon-Fri 12.30pm2.30pm/7.30pm-11pm; Sat 7.30pm-11pm. €€. ristoranteconsorzio.it. Via Monte di Pietà, 23. T: 011 2767661. Map E3

È Cucina This charming restaurant owned by theatrical Florentine chef Cesare Maretti features brightly lit windows overlooking the street, contemporary décor and an open-plan kitchen, now a popular contemporary concept in Northern Italy. The chef’s underlying philosophy is based on the search for premium-quality ingredients with a particular focus on organic fruit and vegetables (all dishes are served with a side, at no additional charge) and conviviality. In the evening, guests can choose from

CANNAVACCIUOLO BISTROT TORINO Established to offer diners an elegant, unique experience, this restaurant highlights the essence of the famous Neapolitan chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo’s culinary art, which sees traditional ingredients from his homeland mixed and matched with those from Piedmont. The space has been designed in keeping with the philosophy of Feng Shui. Via Umberto Cosmo, 6. T: 011 8399893. www.cannavacciuolobistrot.it Map I6 CARIGNANO At the restaurant located inside the Grand Hotel Sitea, the culinary offerings are inspired by Piedmont’s renowned regional cuisine, re-imagined by Milanese Chef Fabrizio Tesse, offering a cuisine rooted in Piedmont tradition with a few forays into the nearby region of Liguria.

Particular attention is paid to raw materials and to desserts that are served in a separate area, aptly named Dulcis in fundo. Here, guests can choose from an array of different Lavazza coffee blends accompanied by singleservings of desserts. Via Bologna, 20A. c/o Nuvola Lavazza T: 011 0897651. www.condividere.com Map H1

DEL CAMBIO Established in 1757, it was among the favourite haunts of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, Giacomo Casanova, Honoré de Balzac, Giuseppe Verdi, Maria Callas and the Agnelli family.

The modern side of art Only a short distance from the centre, there’s a place in which the opulence of the past has ceded to modern art, with one of the richest collections of 19th and 20th century art. Welcome to GAM Turin! By Giulia Minero

I

f you think of Turin as a city steeped in the past, think again! Believe it or not, Turin was the first city in Italy to engage in the public collection of modern art to create its first civic museum, which opened in 1863. More than 150 years later, its ‘heir’, the Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, also known as GAM Torino, hosts an astounding legacy of 45,000 19th and 20th century works of art, including paintings, sculptures, installations and photos, plus a collection of drawings and engravings, and a vast video and art film collection. The works are divided into themed itineraries that change over time, and are displayed in large, luminous spaces on the Galleria’s ground floor. The works 40  W H E R E T U R I N I D E C E M B E R 2019

comprising the permanent collection include masterpieces by Fattori, Pellizza da Volpedo, Fontanesi, De Pisis, Casorati and Morandi, and are showcased alongside the masters of the Italian and international avant-garde movement, including Paul Klee, Picabia, Max Ernst, Pistoletto, Boetti and Paolini. The current display of contemporary collections titled ‘Pittura Spazio Scultura’ – the new beating heart of the gallery until 4 October 2020 – focuses on Italian artistic production between the 1960s and the 1980s, with several examples of artistic research including Arte Povera and Analytical Painting. On the other hand, the underground spaces of GAM are devoted to hosting art projects, temporary exhibitions and a rich video archive.

After visiting the tombs of the Savoy family, the Popes’ chamber and the royal apartments, you can walk around the building to see the memorial that pays tribute to the ‘Grande Torino’. In 1949, a plane carrying the entire Turin football team on their return from an away match crashed into the side of the church, killing all on board. Although the Basilica can be reached by car or public transport, one of the most picturesque ways of accessing it is by the Rack Tramway, an original 1934 tram which rattles the 3km up the hillside.

Piazza San Carlo Also known as ‘the drawing room’ of the city, piazza San Carlo was commissioned by Marie Christine of France in true Parisian style. It is a rectangle of perfect proportions with an equestrian statue – the so-called ‘Caval’d Brons’ of Duke Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy at its centre and on its southern side, facing the Porta Nuova Station, a twin pair of Baroque churches, San Carlo and Santa Christina. The former was built in 1639 based on a project by architect Amedeo di Castellamonte, while building on the latter began in 1619 (its façade was designed by Juvarra and dates back to 1715). Piazza San Carlo is flanked by seemingly endless elegant porticoes housing big-name fashion boutiques. The square is located in the middle of the partly pedestrianized arterial road of via Roma which, with its arcaded shops and cafés, connects the Station of Porta Nuova to piazza Castello. Piazza San Carlo is home to several of the city’s best-known cafés and pastry shops. Make sure to try the blends on offer at Caffè San Carlo, the pastries of Caffè Torino or the chocolates and candies of Stratta. Map F4

Have you heard of Jean-François Champollion? A French archaeologist and Egyptologist and the director of the Egyptian sector of the Louvre in Paris, he is the man who deciphered the mystery of hieroglyphics through the Rosetta Stone in 1822. It is also thanks to Champollion’s expertise that we owe the defining statement: “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin.” When mentioning Turin, he was referring to its unique and extraordinary Egyptian Museum, the world’s first Egyptian museum founded in 1824, the second in terms of the value and number of artifacts (around 40,000) outside of Cairo, and the eighth most widely visited museum in Italy. The British newspaper “The Times” listed it as one of the 50 best museums on the planet. Despite its longstanding history and historic

headquarters – the imposing Palazzo delle Accademia delle Scienze, dating back to the 17th century – the museum is extremely modern in terms of both its layout and immersive visitor experience. Remodelled by Oscar-winning set designer Dante Ferretti in 2015, the exhibition space was doubled, following massive renovations, and is now spread over four levels, three above ground and one below ground, organized in chronological order. Here you’ll find mummies, tombs, papyrus sheets and everything related to ancient Egypt (included embalmed animals) from the Paleolithic to the Coptic era. If you’re so overwhelmed that you don’t know where to begin your tour, get an audio guide. It’s free and allows you to choose and personalize your itinerary to suit individual requirements. A tip?

ESSENTIALS

Turin, the city of the Alps The first capital of Italy, is a ‘drawing room city’ of elegant porticoes surrounded by green hills and, further afield, by majestic mountains. This is Turin, a city renowned for its history, culture and natural beauties.

T

urin was a Roman colony, the first capital of Italy and an industrial city. From its origins to the present time, Turin has had several different incarnations, each of which has left profound traces in its architecture and urban layout. Extending over a surface area of less than 150 square kilometers, crossed by the Po, the longest river in Italy, Turin is characterized by a checkerboard-like grid of streets that makes getting your bearings easy. One of the city’s most distinctive architectural features is its 18km of porticoes – mostly located in the city centre – which house shops and cafes. Its porticoes, originally designed to offer shade in the summer and shelter from the rain, snow, and sometimes the wind in winter, 44  W H E R E T U R I N I D E C E M B E R 2019

and its elegant squares have given Turin the nickname of a ‘drawing room’ city. With the exception of a few streets in the centre, which are off-limits to traffic (including the Quadrilatero Romano and its shopping streets), the remainder of the city is open to traffic and most landmark attractions are easily accessible by car. However, beware of access regulation ‘ZTL Centrale’, which is active Mon-Fri, 7.30am-10.30am and prohibits the circulation of private vehicles and parking in the centre of the city. This restriction does not, however, apply to taxis or chauffer driven hired cars. As an alternative, you can use public transport to get around the city. These include buses, trams and the subway (metropolitana). The ‘metropolitana’, a fully automated subway

system, extends for 13.2km and only includes one line that connects the commune of Collegno to the Torino Porta Nuova railway station (the city’s main railway hub) and the Torino Porta Susa station, before reaching the Lingotto Fiere terminus. Turin boasts an enviable geographic position. It is surrounded by green hills that stand 715 metres above sea level, and which, in addition to their natural beauty, also offer numerous cultural and historical attractions. They can be reached in just a few minutes by public transport, the Sassi-Superga tram or car. Turin is also an ideal base to reach several of Europe’s most renowned ski resorts. It is therefore not surprising that the city is described as the ‘Capital of the Alps’.
