I Corsi - Corso Vinzaglio


What's "Corso"? Eric in Paris should call it "Boulevard" or Ming the Merciless in New York should call it "Avenue" ... Ok in Italy we call these kind of main roads "Corso". In Torino there are lot of them and they cross the city in length and in width. This one is called Corso Vinzaglio.

Che cos'è il "Corso"? Eric a Parigi lo chiamerebbe "Boulevard" o Ming the Merciless in New York lo chiamerebbe "Avenue"... Ik in Italia chiamiamo questo genere di strade principali: "Corso". In Torino ve n'è diversi ed essi attraversano la città in lunghezza e in larghezza. Questo, qui raffigurato è Corso Vinzaglio.

And we have some corsos in Nice too. That's what I call globalisation.
I like the soft sheen on the paving stones. Well captured.

Lovely shot - the sheen of the stones as Angela mentions, & the nice soft green of the spring trees.

I'm happy Annie if my information has been useful.

Magiceye, thank you, now I know just a bit more of your so interesting country.

Kate, I know that (Sunset Boulevard) but honestly I was thinking you actually prefer to use "avenue". Please, may you tell me the difference between "boulevard" and "avenue"?

Angela and Nikon, paving stone concern another street (not "corso" but "via") because corso Vinzaglio start from a T junction. I'll take it next days.

Thank you to everyone and a special Grazie to Matilde :-)

I learned a new Italian word today. And it's not even a dirty word. :-)

My Italian is limited to musical terms like pianosimmo, forte, allegra, andante.

Thanks for the mention in your blog.
