Arrival in Torino and check in to a hotel in the city centre. Guided tour of Torino city centre. First capital of the Kingdom of Italy, then considered one of the baroque Europeans capitals, and today capital of contemporary art.
Torino is the centre of the great Italian industry due to the cutting-edge design and planning of many great firms committed to important projects. In 2008, it became the World Design Capital. Numerous are the public art works such as sculptures, fountains and lighting. During these years, they testify the changes of the city planning, renovations of districts, and of a specific area like the passante ferroviario, ( an underground railway line of Torino), which shows works realized by Merz, Penone, and Kirkeby, sculptures realized in squares and gardens by Pomodoro, Varotsos, Stoisa, Didou, Molinari, the high-relief of Mastroianni in bronze on the gate of the Teatro Regio, and the curious Piercing on an eighteenth century palace in piazzetta Corpus Domini. Not to forget the public art of MAU, the Urban Art Museum of the picturesque old district: murals, paintings and sculptures adorn the streets of the district.
Return to the Hotel for dinner.
