Product Description:

Surprises await in Turin, Italy's first capital.

Long before Turin hosted the Olympics, it marked important Italian milestones. In 1563, it became the capital of the Duchy of Savoy. During the period of the Kingdom of Italy, from 1861 to 1865, Turino served as unified Italy's first capital city.

This "cradle of Italian liberty" hosted individuals who contributed to the Risorgimento, the Resurgence that unified the country, including statesman Camillo Paolo Filippo Giulio Benso, Count of Cavour, Isolabella and Leri.

Turin is also rich with cultural gems. Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neo-classical, and Art Nouveau architecture captivate during a casual stroll. The Mole Antonelliana is visible from various points around the city. The bell tower offers stunning views.

Visitors can picnic near the Palatine Gates and their magnificent towers. A stroll along Via Garibaldi or shopping on Via Roma ends with a Bicerin, an espresso drink. The layers of coffee, chocolate, and whipped cream might be Italy's best-kept coffee secret.

Taste these surprises and more with the color photos in Treasures of Turin: The First Italian Capital (a Travel Photo Art book).

In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, passport sized productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.

This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.

Laine Cunningham, a three-time recipient of The Hackney Award, writes fiction that takes readers around the world. Her debut novel, The Family Made of Dust, is set in the Australian Outback, while Reparation is a novel of the American Great Plains. She is the editor of Sunspot Literary Journal.

Product Description:
This friendly and easy-to-use book will guide you—effortlessly, and at just the right tempo—through the cultural, artistic, and culinary generosity of a beautiful city. —Alice Waters

Nestled between the Alps and the Po River, Turin was hailed by Le Corbusier as the most beautifully situated city he'd ever seen, and by Giorgio de Chirico as the “most profound, most enigmatic, most disquieting city not only of Italy, but of the world.” Today Turin, an elegant city of more than a million people, with views of the Alps around every corner, is home to Italy's most vibrant contemporary art scene, as well as extraordinary architecture, sophisticated shops, and food and wine that are an epicurean's dream.

A Civilized Traveller's Guide to Turin features:

* detailed listings of Turin's cultural attractions, from the one-of-a-kind Museum of Cinema to the world-renowned Museo Egizio, which holds the most significant collection of Egyptian artifacts outside of Cairo
* personal recommendations for hotels, restaurants, cafes, and shops
* walks through the city's medieval, Baroque, and modern neighborhoods
* suggestions for short trips around the region, ideas for what to do with children, and more
