About Turin (Torino):
The town of Brusasco is located closed to the city of Turin and is
located within the province of Turin itself.
Turin (Italian: Torino; Piedmontese: Turin) is a major industrial
city in north-western Italy, capital of the Piedmont region, located
mainly on the west bank of the Po River. The population of Turin city is
908,000 (2004 census), but with its metropolitan area totals about 1.7
million inhabitants. The province is one of the largest in Italy, with
6,830 square kilometres (2,637 sq. mi), and one of the most populous,
with 2,236,941 inhabitants at the 2004 census. Turin is also well-known
as the home of the shroud of Turin and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
The name of Turin comes from Tau, a Celtic word that means mountains.
Its Italian name, Torino, translates as "little bull"; hence
the coat of arms and the symbol of the city. The area was settled by the
Taurini in pre-Roman times.
Turin is located in northwest Italy. It is surrounded on the western
and northern front by the Alps and on the southern front by the hills of
Monferrato. Four major rivers pass through the city: the Po and two of
its tributaries, the Dora Riparia (from the Celtic duria meaning
"water," later changed to "Duria Minor" by the
Romans), the Stura di Lanzo, and the Sangone.
One of its main symbols is the Mole Antonelliana, which hosts the
National Cinema Museum of Italy.
The main symbol of the Roman city are the Palatine Towers.
The Cathedral of St John the Baptist houses the Shroud of Turin, an
old linen cloth with an imprint of a man, which is believed by many to
be the cloth that covered Jesus in his grave.
The Museo Egizio has the most important collection of Egyptian
antiquities in the world after the Cairo Museum.
Turin offers a circuit of great historical and architectural
interest: the Savoy Residences. In addition to the Royal Palace, the
official residence of the Savoys until 1865, the circuit includes
palaces, residences and castles in the city centre and in the
surrounding towns. Turin is home to Palazzo Chiablese, the Royal Armoury,
the Royal Library, Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Carignano, Villa della
Regina, and the Valentino Castle. In the area around the city, the
castles of Rivoli, Moncalieri, Venaria, Agliè, Racconigi, and Govone
can be visited. The Hunting Lodge by Juvarra can be admired in Stupinigi
and there is also the royal estate in Pollenzo. Some of these (first and
foremost Rivoli, the location of the Museum of the same name) host
events, exhibitions and cultural initiatives not only of local interest.
In 1997, this complex of historical buildings was recognised as a World
Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
In the hills above the city is the basilica church of Superga, from
where there is a splendid panorama of Turin against a backdrop of the
snow-capped Alps. The basilica holds the tombs of many of the dukes of
Savoy, as well as many of the kings of Sardania. Superga can be reached
by means of the Superga Rack Railway from the suburb of Sassi.
The city is also famous for being the film set of the 1969 classic
film The Italian Job starring Michael Caine - it is possible to visit
all the locations on a special tour - and Deep Red (1975), directed by
Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento.
Turin is the birthplace of solid chocolate. It was in Turin that
Doret invented at the end of the 18th century a revolutionary machine
that could make solid chocolate as we eat it now. Turin produces a
typical chocolate, named Gianduiotto after Gianduja, a local Commedia
dell'arte mask, and many other kinds of chocolate in a host of
confectioneries all around the city. Every year the town organizes
cioccolaTO', a two week chocolate festival with the main piedmontese
chocolate factories and producers and some international ones like Lindt
