Houses By The River

These houses near to the river Po, from this view seem to be in some places far from the town center, but they are actually just located a short distance from the center and the other side of the houses is a busy main road .

Rescuse Mission Valentini

The days of raining rasied the level of the river Po, the Murazzi along the river bank is basically immersed in water, running current brought down all kind of things on its way, including the two Valentini.



The Valentino and Valentina were the two boats which carried tourists for a tour on the the river along the Valentino Park, it was one of the tourist's favourite activity.



This morning, tragic happened, the two Valentini broke free of their chains and run away following the current.



They were blocked by  the Vittorio Emanuele I bridge, and stucked under the arch of the bridge.



Emergency rescuse was activated. 2 big cranes were setup to secure the two boats and to pull them to safety.



Unfortunately when Valentino was pulled to safety, Valentina slipped, hit herself on the bottom side of the bridge and overturned, then she was brought away by the merciless river, separated with Valentino forever.....


Once they were happy togther..... making people happy....

La Mole In The Mist Of Rain

It has been raining the whole week, and the Po has overflown, Torino is wet!


In the evening, the atmosphere is misty and foggy, the top side of La Mole is covered by a layer of fog, making it looks rather mysterious....

Trans Freedom March 2016

Last Saturday was the " Trans Freedom March " in Turin, it started at piazza Vittorio and ended in Piazza Carignano. 







It was the third annual march to remember the victims of transphobia and hatres against these people, a march to raise the awareness of the rights to exist for them.

 



 Happy to see that there was more participants this years than the previous two marches, even the new Mayor was there joining the march.

Art Exhibition Paratissima 12

 Paratissima is a project created in Turin (Italy), its aim is to foster and support emerging artists and creative talents, giving them the opportunity to join an international network where they have a chance to promote themselves, to sell their works, to meet other artists and creative workers and to improve their skills and knowledge.



Paratissima was born in Turin (Italy) in 2005, with the aim of hosting and promoting artists and creative workers in a context dethatched from the institutional and elite art scene, giving to emerging talents an opportunity to surface and grow. In few years it has become one of the most important events in the national art scene. 


This year the Paratissima was held again in Torino Esposizioni, many paintings, sculptures and photos exhibited, somehow, the craziness and weirdness of the displayed arts were toned down and an entry fee of 3 euro was imposted.


Regardless of the  changes, it is still an EVENT that we won't want to miss every year. Just hope that it won't try to go too mainstream which will lose it uniquity and fun.
