Old Torino, Torino as Italy’s first capital, Torino as a great industrial area, Torino on the forefront in the promotion of art and culture: every period corresponds to a different identity that has left a mark on the city’s portrait expressed in its cultural, architectural and monumental heritage.
The 20th Winter Olympic Games in Torino in 2006 has left the city an extraordinary heritage. Not only a heritage of infrastructures at the service of citizens, tourists, companies, culture and sports, but above all a renewed way of life for Torino’s natives: a major openness towards the world, a desire to be together and have fun, the ability of thinking up new challenges, plannig them and – as was the case in the Games – succeeding.
In the years following the Olympic Games, Torino has continued its path of transformation (undertaken a while prior) – from industrial capital to the capital of innovation, culture and a more elevated quality of life – and today it is rightfully taking its place among those cities that “deserve a trip”. In fact, Torino has been included in the classification of “three star cities” of the prestigious Michelin Guide along with Florence, Venice and Rome. This is because Torino offers a quality of life made of art, culture, gastronomy and art de vivre that is one of a kind.
