Dear Visitor, welcome to Italy! 2019 is the year in which Italy will be 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 will host a series of special events. Where The full program of Italian exhibitions and events honouring Leonardo throughout 2019 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 end of the 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 O C TO 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 drawing room city Turin boasts 18 kilometres of porticoes, − 12.5km of which are interconnected to form one of the largest and most convenient pedestrian areas in Europe. The porticoes have given Turin the nickname of a ‘drawing room city’ because, whatever the weather, you can stroll, stop for a chat, drink a cup of coffee, choose an item of jewelry or try on a dress, as if you were in a drawing room, while sheltered by its colonnades. In addition, Turin’s porticoes are renowned for their striking beauty – from the grey stone of via Po to the marble of via Roma – and they are one of the world’s greatest architectural, aesthetic and socio-economic wonders. Although traditional window displays, edged with black and gold, in the shadow of the colonnade give many of the locales an austere, old-world appearance, when you cross their thresholds, you’ll find several contemporary treasures. For a relaxing break, head to one of the area’s many historic cafés, like Florio, Caffè Abrate and Caffè Baratti & Milano, an art nouveau jewel designed by architect Casanova. In piazza San Carlo, you’ll find Confetteria Stratta, Caffè San Carlo and, in piazza Carignano, several other historical establishments including Gelateria Pepino. Turin’s arcades boast among the highest density of shops in the world: there’s one every 75 square metres. The city’s twelve, unbroken kilometers of arcades host approximately one thousand shops, for a total of 2,250 window displays. The list includes the stand-alone boutiques of some of the world’s most prestigious brands, multi-brand clothing stores, small vintage gems, perfumeries, bookstores and more.

From traditional places to gourmet restaurants, plus mustvisit pasticcerie and some insider tips, Where® Turin takes you on a tour to discover the most authentic Piedmontese cuisine.

We’ve created a practical guide of typical, must-try dishes, together with the addresses of the places where you can sample the true flavours of tradition, to help you make the most of your culinary experience, and even purchase authentic Piedmontese specialties to take home with you.

WHERE TO TASTE THE BEST OF TURIN’S TRADITIONAL SPECIALTIES

L

If all these gastronomic terms have captivated you and whet your appetite, you’re in luck, because Turin boasts numerous restaurants that pay tribute to regional culinary traditions. Based on the motto “tell me what food you love and I’ll tell you where to go”, we’ve rounded up a selection of the best foodie destinations in the city. Our culinary tour starts in the beating heart of Turin. For lovers of bagna cauda, a stopover at the Antica Bruschetteria Pautasso is a must. At this oldworld restaurant in the heart of the centre, bagna cauda is prepared using only local ingredients sourced from Slow Food Presidia and is available in three versions that also include a garlic-free re-interpretation, for people who are not fans of strong flavours. It is accompanied by raw and cooked seasonal vegetables and boiled eggs

ush rolling hills and woods, and pasture-rich plains, Piedmont is all this and more. Its varied terrain lends itself to cattle breeding, grape harvesting and diverse cultivations. It’s is not surprising that the region offers a remarkable variety of high-quality raw materials, including grapes, meat, cheese, mushrooms and truffles, which are the basis for its culinary and wine-making traditions, and amongst the richest in Italy. The months of October and November, when the days get shorter and the autumn air gets crisper, offer the perfect opportunity to titillate your palate and indulge in the wealth of the region’s gastronomic delights. Don’t worry if words like ‘Bonet’, ‘Gianduiotti’ or ‘Bagna Cauda’ are completely foreign to you.

(www.pautasso.it). Apropos respect for tradition, the Le Tre Galline restaurant – one of the oldest in Turin – is a reference point for those in search of authentic, traditional regional cuisine. Standouts on the menu, created by chefs Andrea Chiuni and Manuel Bortolotti, include vitello tonnato and typical Turinese agnolotti infused with three different types of roast meat served with a roast sauce, and accompanied by one of the venue’s exquisite local wines (www.3galline. it). On the subject of vitello tonnato, one of the city’s most popular, tastiest versions can be found at Le Vitel Etonné. In addition to this dish, after which the locale is named, the menu, which is limited and strictly linked to seasonal produce, features ravioli del plin – reinterpreted with a Bra sausage sauce and leeks, or with mountain butter and hazelnuts – as well as other homemade pasta specialties (www.leviteletonne.com). For those in search of a restaurant that combines a menu featuring local products with a retro ambience and a youthful, convivial atmosphere, Scannabue is your go-to destination. Here, the ravioli del plin are carefully prepared with a filling of three roast meats and served with mountain butter (www.scannabue.it). By crossing the w w w.wh e re t ravel e r. com 13

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.

BAGNA CAUDA

river, just steps from the Church of Gran Madre di Dio, Monferrato, a restaurant located in via Monferrato, serves authentic Piedmontese cuisine, with a focus on dishes made with Fassona and 'Bue Grasso di Carrù' beef, combined with a few delicacies re-engineered in their most contemporary version. Its delectable ravioli del plin, served with sage and butter, are well worth a mention (www.ristorantemonferrato.com). If the idea of Turin’s mixed fry has whetted your appetite, then the Due Mondi Ristorante is your go-to destination. This locale, featuring an open-plan kitchen just a short distance from Porta Nuova, welcomes guests in an elegant ambience, with meticulous attention to detail. This venue is the perfect place to sample Piedmont’s authentic mixed fry recipe prepared with local ingredients, possibly followed by a selection of traditional desserts (www.duemondiristorante.it). Alternatively, the Trattoria Sotto la Luna is the ideal place to taste bollito misto. Although this is generally served as a one-dish meal

accompanied by traditional sauces made from herbs and vegetables, including bagnet verd and bagnet rus, those with a more hearty appetite can opt for a starter of caponet (www.sottolaluna.it). Brasato is possibly the only Piedmontese specialty that lends itself to the highest number of interpretations. If you want to stay true to tradition, head to Solferino where brasato is prepared with 'Bue Grasso di Carrù' beef, cooked over a low flame in DOC Barolo wine. The menu, which varies according to the season, and the availability of seasonal ingredients, also includes a first-class bollito misto, only available if ordered at least five days in advance (www.ristorantesolferino.com). If you don’t want to miss out on this must-try experience, ask your concierge to book it for you! Always on the subject of brasato, a re-imagined, particularly noteworthy version is the one served at Consorzio, a warm and welcoming bistro which boasts a fabulous wine list, featuring unconventional labels (www.ristoranteconsorzio.it). Lastly, to end

Consorzio restaurant

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. Tradition dictates that bagna cauda should either be eaten as a shared one-dish meal, served in a terracotta bowl where fellow diners dip raw and cooked vegetables, including cardoon, onions, Jerusalem artichokes, cabbage and cauliflower, cheese and thin slices of raw meat into the bowl, or it can be eaten as an ‘antipasto’, when the sauce is drizzled over roasted red bell peppers.

BRASATO Brasato is undoubtedly one of the most elaborate and delicious specialties of Piedmontese culinary tradition. It is a dish prepared with beef from the highly-prized Fassona breed of cattle, marinated for 12 hours in red wine – generally fullbodied, aromatic Piedmontese wines like Barolo or Barbaresco – and then slow-cooked in the same wine, with herbs and vegetables. When the meat is ready, it is sliced and topped with a reduction of the sauce and served with vegetables or polenta.

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.


AGNOLOTTI DEL PLIN hese small filled ouches are made with a thin sheet of dou h, stu ed with a fillin of raised meat usuall 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.

LE PIOLE If you want to immerse yourself fully in Piedmontese tradition, drop in at a piola! A piola is the Piedmontese equivalent of an osteria or a trattoria. It’s almost always run by family members and its menu, formerly boasting a simple, inexpensive fixed-price meal, features all the specialties typical of Piedmontese cuisine. Do as the locals do and order your favourite dishes accompanied by a quarter liter of house wine.

La Piola del Forno

PIEDMONTESE GRAN BOLLITO MISTO This elaborate dish of mixed boiled meats is made from seven cuts of Piedmontese veal, including the thigh muscle, shoulder and breast, and seven ‘improvers’, tongue, musetto (a pork sausage made in part from a pig’s snout) and a game hen, cooked for several hours in boiling water. It is accompanied by seven tasty sauces, and a side of vegetables. One of the favourite dishes of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, and Vittorio Emanuele, Piedmont’s ‘bollito misto’ even has its own brotherhood.

CAPONET Caponet, a specialty of the area between Turin and the neighbouring city of Ivrea, are tasty oven-baked meat roulades wrapped in cabbage lea es heir stu n is enerall made with minced pork and freshly ground sausage, cooked with onion, salt, pepper, eggs, grated cheese and breadcrumbs. Hearty and nourishing, Caponet are usually served in the colder months of the year.

BONET Bonet, pronounced bunet, is a soft, rich, deliciously old-fashioned dessert that can be eaten with a spoon. Bonet is made from 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.

on a sweet note, let’s talk about bonet. It’s essential to remember that most restaurants serving Piedmontese cuisine include bonet on their dessert menu. So make sure to taste the version served by Piola del Forno, a typical Piedmontese osteria boasting an informal atmosphere where you can taste tantalizing dishes of regional cuisine and a wonderfully soft, tasty bonet (www.lapioladelforno.it).

SHOPPING FOR FOOD When talking about Piedmont’s culinary tradition, it’s impossible not to mention chocolate. Way back in the 17th century, artisanal workshops throughout Piedmont imported cocoa and created delicacies made from the so-called ‘food of the gods.’ During the second half of the 18th century, they began producing gianduiotti and other tantalizing sweet treats made from hazelnuts, a raw material in which the region abounds. Gianduiotti, chocolate truffles, pralines and chocolates of different shapes and sizes, and cremini (pralines made with three different layers of chocolate), are all local specialties that can either be tasted at Turin’s chocolate shops or purchased as gifts. Must-visit addresses include the via Lagrange workshop of Guido Gobino, Turin’s king of chocolate, where you can also purchase these delectable treats and book a tasting session (www.guidogobino. it). Chocolate truffles, gianduiotti, spreadable hazelnut creams and creative re-interpretations of the most classic chocolates can be found at the Turin-based shop of Guido Castagna at number 27 via Maria Vittoria (www.guidocastagna.it), while the first standalone store of Caffarel

– a 100% Torinese brand – in via Carlo Alberto, offers a choice of dark and milk chocolate bars infused with hazelnuts, pralines and gift boxes (www.caffarel.com). If you want to immerse yourself in a setting worthy of Willy Wonka’s fabled ‘chocolate factory’, and purchase a selection of the best artisanal chocolate, make sure to visit the Confetteria Pasticceria Pfatisch (www.pfatisch.com). If you have a weakness for sweet treats, a visit to the best pastry shops in the city is a must. They’re all listed in our Dining section on page 37. If your idea of a typically Torinese gift is a bottle of wine, Turin is home to numerous wine bars that won’t disappoint! The Casa del Barolo, boasts a selection of the best Barolo, Barbaresco and Ruché labels (www.casadelbarolo.it), while those looking to immerse themselves amongst an array of classic Piedmontese vintages, including Barolo Chinato, select wine Grappas, Moscato d’Asti, Barolo, Dogliani, Nebbiolo and other wines from the best wine estates in the region, can be tempted by the wide range of offerings at Eataly Torino Lingotto (www.eataly.net).

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. The two and a half hour tour starts from Piazza Statuto, considered the city’s

‘heart of darkness’, and allows you to immerse yourself in the darker side of this city of two souls (www.getyourguide.it). The Torino Magica® Tour also takes you along a fascinating route amongst sinister architecture, esoteric symbols, dragons and alchemic caves. The tour ends with a sighting of a veiled woman holding the chalice of the Holy Grail (see photo). 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 (https://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). All tours are available in English, or other foreign languages on request.

Its present-day appearance is the result of work by several prominent architects of

the era, including Amedeo di Castellamonte, Michelangelo Garove and lastly Filippo Juvarra, who designed many of its most beautiful and widely photographed spaces, including the Grand Gallery, the Chapel of Saint Hubert and the imposing 18th-century complexes of the Juvarra Stables and the Citroniera (Orangerie), now used to host exhibitions and events. Inside the Reggia di Venaria Reale, multimedia installations enable visitors to reconstruct the history of court life, while the apartments of King Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy and his wife Rosa Vercellana, remodelled in the adjacent Castello della Mandria, are open for public viewing, as is the room hosting the collection of royal jewels.

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

20 W H E R E T U R I N I O C TO B E R 2019

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. THE LANGHE The Langhe are situated between the Tanaro River and Liguria, between the provinces of Asti and Cuneo. Particularly noteworthy among the area’s many tourist attractions


are its numerous castles, including that of Grinzane Cavour. 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).

After visiting the museum in Barolo, stop in the village of La Morra, better known as ‘the terrace of the Langhe’ thanks to its spectacular views, and head to Massimo Camia’s starred restaurant for a fabulous gourmet meal (www.massimocamia.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). After the long walk up to the castle, take a break and treat yourself to a

delicious gourmet meal at the Da Guido restaurant located in the nature reserve of Fontanafredda (www.guidoristorante.it). MONFERRATO Stretching southwards, as far as the foot of the Ligurian Appenines, the Monferrato area occupies a fertile tract of terrain between the provinces of Alessandria and Asti. In addition to numerous historic, cultural and outdoor activities, Monferrato is renowned for its gastronomic specialties. Nature, culture, art and religion combine in a walk that takes visitors on a journey to discover the Nature Park of the Sacro Monte di Crea, in the province of Alessandria, a real feat of architectural design that encompasses Mount Crea and its sanctuary, which in turn, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

ROERO Roero is situated in the northeastern part of the province of Cuneo, to the left of the Tanaro river. Like the neighbouring Langhe, this area is renowned for its enogastronomic and cultural offerings. Among its castles, the Castle of Govone is particularly noteworthy. The castle is located in the province of Cuneo and was formerly one of the royal residences of the House of Savoy (www.castellorealedigovone.it). Located just a short distance from Alba, the Castle of Monticello is one of the most imposing and best-preserved medieval buildings in the area owing to the fact that since 1372 it has been owned and inhabited by the Roero family of Monticello (www.roerodimonticello. it). There’s nothing that says ‘royal highness’ more than a castle. Experience what it feels like to be a prince or princess for one night and stay at the Castle of Guarene, an important stopover on the Piedmontese Baroque itinerary which also hosts a hotel belonging to the Relais&Châteaux chain (www.castellodiguarene.com).

the Eco Museum of ‘Pietra da Cantone’ – a type of sandstone only found in this area – in Cella Monte. 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).

Historic wine cellar in Langhe famous sausage of Bra, a delectable product made from lean beef and bacon. 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). Only a few kilometers from Bra, a trip to the architectural complex of the Agenzia di

Pollenzo is well worth your time. Built in 1833, as a country residence for the House of Savoy, it now hosts the first University of Gastronomic Sciences in the world. This university was founded and promoted by the international Slow Food association, which studies, protects and disseminates the agricultural and enogastromic traditions of countries worldwide (www.agenziadipollenzo.com).

Although different varieties exist, due to the fact that it is particularly sensitive to environmental and climate changes and pollution, the white truffle of Alba – a rare, uncultivable species – is one of the world’s most highly prized fungi. A real subterranean gem, it is generally eaten raw and shaved over starters such as tagliolini, risottos, fried or poached eggs, and beef tartare. (C.Z.) From 5 to 24 November, this city will host Alba’s International White Truffle Fair, a key event on the tourist/culinary calendar of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato now celebrating its 89th edition. The theme of this edition is ‘Equilibrio Perfetto’ (Perfect Balance). Eggs and white Alba truffles represent an ideal combination of taste, a delectable pairing, whose potential and multi-faceted aspects will be explored by both starred and local chefs, and cookery fans. More than just a conventional fair, the event’s strength lies in its ability to offer visitors an action-packed program of cooking demos, performances, experiential tours and artthemed events. The main draw of the fair is the Mercato Mondiale del Tartufo Bianco d’Alba (Alba White Truffle Market) where, on Saturdays and Sundays, visitors can purchase this precious tuber whose authenticity is guaranteed by the National Truffle Study Center. The market is a unique place where, in addition to purchasing certified truffles, you can learn all about the ‘trifulau’, truffle hunters, whose world consists of earth, patience, dedication and total affinity with their dogs. In addition to the above, one of the events most eagerly awaited by visitors is the

Alba Truffle Show, an event dedicated to cooking demos, the sensory analysis of truffles, wine tasting experiences and Foodie Moments, featuring different interpretations of Alba’s white truffle by starred Italian chefs. To celebrate the egg, the key ingredient of traditional dishes, one of the innovations of this 89th edition is the Atelier of fresh pasta. Four dates, starring two masters of the art, to learn the secrets of dishes like tajarin and agnolotti al plin, paired with the white Alba truffle. Simply said, a ‘perfect balance’! Piazza Risorgimento is transformed into a ‘Salotto dei Gusti e dei Profumi’, a permanent exhibition that pays tribute to the finest culinary offerings of Piedmont and Italy with tastings and educational workshops. The marriage between gastronomy, art, music and design is translated into numerous fringe events including the Donkey Palio and the entertaining Borough Bacchanal. During the fair, medieval traditions become unmissable events and even children have a chance to have fun at the Alba Truffle Bimbi pavilion. Under the guidance of expert educators, children can participate in activities, workshops and games. A place where they can learn about nature, the environment, cooking and traditions. From 18 November to 5 December, the Church of San Domenico will host ‘Leonardo da Vinci: the Genius’, an exhibition of the ‘Tavola Lucana’ attributed to da Vinci 500 years after his death. From art we move onto literature with a must-attend event featuring Japanese writer Haruki Murakami on 11 October. Last but not least, the fair will feature the ‘Classica’ event. From 6 October to 24 November, the Church of San Giuseppe will host Sunday morning concerts dedicated to the best of classical music. On 12 October, MilleunanotaJazz&Co, Alba’s autumn festival, will kick off with four dates dedicated to jazz and contemporary music.. www.fieradeltartufo.org

Welcome back, San Carlo dal 1973! A new oasis has opened in the centre of Turin where you can shop for the creations of emerging fashion, furnishing and design brands, enjoy a snack or attend presentations and concerts. By Giulia Minero

S

an Carlo dal 1973, one of the most iconic and futuristic Italian concept stores has been revamped and re-opened in a courtyard that formerly housed the stables of the aristocratic Palazzo Villa. Having abandoned its former vocation for big-name fashion brands, this new multi-functional store, the result of the creative talent of its owner Giorgina Siviero, acts a bridge between Piazza San Carlo and via Lagrange and is spread over 940 sq.m. on several levels. Its innovative, sustainable architectural concept, infused with natural light and decorated with plants as furnishing elements, was designed by Jeannot Cerutti to highlight the collections based on a ‘no brand’ approach, giving way to a highly select assortment of creations by

26 W H E R E T U R I N I O C TO B E R 2019

emerging designers. Inside, the ground floor is dedicated to perfumes, essences and accessories, plus artisanal jewelry from British, Japanese and American designers. On the first floor, apparel, homeware and hand-crafted Japanese items combine to give life to an unconventional shopping experience. On the second floor, a terrace with a bar welcomes customers wanting to indulge in a relaxing break, sip a cocktail or choose their favourite dish from the small menu that changes weekly. >> San Carlo dal 1973 Piazza San Carlo, 161 c/o Palazzo Villa T: 011 5114111.

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Open Mon 3.30pm-7.30pm; Tues-Sat 10.30am-7.30pm.

The Veg that you weren’t expecting Chiodi Latini New Food offers a creative vegetable-based menu. A return to authentic ingredients, with a new approach to healthy food, and a focus on taste. By Chiara Zaccarelli

T

his cuisine transcends today’s fads, and goes beyond the sterile definitions of ‘vegetarian’ or ‘vegan’, codifying a new type of authentic, plant-based gastronomy that focuses on the concept of whole foods. “We have a unique, experimental approach to cuisine, and we are receptive to international influences. We use unprocessed raw materials, ongoing research, the selection and enhancement of plant-based ingredients and the fusion of the fruits of the land in which we find ourselves with flavours that come from afar. We are Italian, but we don’t cook Italian-style. If anything, you could say that we think like Italians. This is our added value.” This is the philosophy of Antonio Chiodi Latini, the chef of the Chiodi Latini New Food restaurant. Piedmontese by adoption, but 34 W H E R E T U R I N I O C TO B E R 2019

originally from Lombardy, he decided to dedicate himself entirely to plant-based cuisine after years of focusing on traditional cooking (he was a pupil of Gualtiero Marchesi). The culinary concept of Chiodi Latini New Food cannot be labeled. It doesn’t focus on any defined tastes, and embodies a range of flavours and colours of the earth, with a lot of fusion. The chef uses only prime-quality, seasonal vegetables, in the forms that are closest to the way that nature produces them, and prefers these to refined products. At lunch, the restaurant offers a bistro formula, featuring 4 different menu choices designed to offer guests a quick, healthy lunch break. At dinner, guests can indulge in a leisurely gourmet experience featuring a choice of three different meal options that allow you to taste from four to seven of the chef’s creations. The

ambience is basic and minimalist chic, with only a few tables, and an intimate, informal atmosphere. >> Chiodi Latini New Food Via San Quintino, 33/C . T: 011 5623631. www.chiodilatininewfood.com. Map D5

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.

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.

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.

T: 011 5170171. www.ristorantecarignano.it Map F5 CASA VICINA Located in the headquarters of Eataly, this restaurant is run by the Vicina family, who for five generations have embraced the region’s tradition of hospitality, fine wines and traditional cuisine, infused with prime quality ingredients.

Basilica di Superga Commissioned by Vittorio Amedeo II as a thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary for Turin’s deliverance from the French siege of 1706, the Basilica is one of the many masterpieces by architect Filippo Juvarra, who designed it according to the style of the era with a colonnaded portico, cloisters (the building still houses a friars’ convent) and a dome. Situated on one of the hills surrounding Turin and framed by the Alpine mountain range, the Basilica dominates the city and offers visitors a breathtaking view that is even more stunning when viewed from the top of the dome (131 steps). 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’.

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 O C TO 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’.
