Calling By The Window

In palazzo Madama, a woman stood by the giant windows, looking out to piazza Castello and made a phone call....



Holding a map in her hand, perhaps she was lost and calling for help to get out of this grand palace?

The Beauty Of Ruins

These white buildings at the end of via XX Settembre and the Museum Archeology look striking against the clouds and with the ruins of the ancient roma theatre in front. 



At a closer look, I realised that it is the beauty of the ruins which enchanced the view.

Middle Track

These track for trams are a bit special in the sense that they are fenced and are right in the middle of a wide road crossing the bridge over the riverPo.


The bridge is the Ponte Regina Margherita which crosses the river po from piazzale Regina Margherita to Corso Casale over the other side. It is by se not an outstanding looking bridge, but it does offer a very nice view on the river Po.

MAO'S Entrance

Love the entrance to the MAO ( Museum of Oriental Art ), it looks very Zen.



The Museum of Oriental Art (Italian: Museo d'Arte Orientale, also known by the acronym MAO) is a museum located in Palazzo Mazzonis in the city of Turin, Italy.
The museum contains one of the most important Asian art collection in Italy.

 The museum was opened on December 5, 2008, with the merging of oriental collection of Turin City Museum of Ancient Art and various contributions from the Turin City Hall, the Region of Piedmont, the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation and Compagnia di San Paolo. The first opening was visited by around 10,000 people.
