Projection Of Basilica Of Superga

On the 27 Of July, 300 years the first stone was placed down for the construction of the Basilica Of Superga in Turin.
To celebrate this day, a silhuette of the Basilica is projected on La Mole.

 Usually, we get up to the cupola of the basilica of Superga to have a panorama view of Torino and the splendid La Mole, now instead we have a view of the basilica on La Mole.

Lonely Night

The appartment in front of piazza Castello, expensive living place for rich people. At the only appartment with light on, a man standing alone on his balcony, in contrast with the busy crowd in the piazza.

Fishing In Po

Not sure about the quality of the fishes or even if they are edible.....

However, occasionally, people still try to fish in the river Po, maybe just for the thrill of fishing...

The event takes place in the piazzetta in front of the Royal Palace and it runs from the 1st to the 16th of July. 

Sogno Americano ( American Dream ) performed by the Orchestra of Teatro Regio of Torino was the performance on the 7th of July, since ticket is needed for the entrance in the evening, without ticket I only got to see its rehearsal in the afternoon.

Scenes Of A Raining Day

Standing in the center of piazza Castello, the rain came unexpectedly, most of the people were caught off guard.....


but not these umbrellas sellers, who seemed to be well informed of the arrival of rain, they always appeared before the rain with arms full of umbrellas, standing by the street or in the piazza, getting ready to offer to sell their umbrellas to people who had not a single clue that the rain was coming.

This was in May, since the 'promised' storm didn't arrived yesterday, the temperature remains hot, so hope this post can bring some sense of 'cooling' effect for the day.

Pride Torino was held on the 17 of June, due to work and some other inconveniences, only now I have the time to arrange the photo taken on that day.

The parade started at piazza Carlo felice in front of the train station, Porta Nuova and joined by the trucks at piazza Castello and together they ended the march in piazza Statuto.

More that 50 thousand people attended the parade and it went off smoothly .

CDP July Theme Motion

The fun of taking the metro is to get to the front seat of the first cart and watch through the glass panel how the metro rush through the tunnel.

Of course having a camera in hand just added more fun to it.
