With the nomination as European Youth Capital Turin will experience a really sens...a(c)tional 2010. That's why we have decided to talk about this event through the senses, browsing through the agenda and interviewing, thanks to the editorial staff of www.digi.to.it, four famous Turinese involved in the project,who have a particularly keen sight, hearing, taste, touch.
The Turin 2010 programme is very rich and dynamic. You can find real time updated news on the website www.yourtime2010.it. Moreover we suggest you visit the following sites: www.torinogiovani.it, www.torino-cultura.it and www.digi.to.it.
