Lingotto by Renzo Piano


I will take better same photo (I did it by cell. telephone). This is the [in English-->] Lingotto Fairs Exhibition Center. It borns thank you to Giovanni Agnelli (Fiat Group owner) and Renzo Piano architect popular in whole world. When Fiat moved from this first factory (built in 1922) to others born all over: out of the city but also in South of Italy, Poland and Brasil most known architects was called to think how to use all this space. Renzo Piano won the competition and now the most important exhibitions, conferences, and classic music concert (in a cherry wood auditorium), are hosted there.

Effettuerò meglio la stessa fotografia (è stata fatta col telefono cellulare). Questo è il Lingotto Fiere Centro Congressi. Nasce grazie a Giovanni Agnelli (azionista di riferimento del Gruppo Fiat) e l'architetto Renzo Piano conosciuto in tutto il mondo. Quano la Fiat si spostò da questo stabilimento (costruito nel 1922) verso altri nati ovunque: fuori città ma anche in Sud Italia, Polonia e Brasile i più famosi architetti vennero chiamati per trovare una destinazione a questo spazio. Vinse il nado Renzo Piano ed ora le più importanti rassegne, conferenze e concerti di musica classica (nell'auditorium di ciliegio), vengono ospitati qui.

It still looks vey modern, even though it was built in 1922.
You have a good mix of old and the new in Torino.

Very good photo for a cellphone.
Renzo Piano is well known around the world as Fabrizio says, and also in Switzerland for two very interesting galleries - the Beyeler Foundation and the Paul Klee Centre. However his offical website must be one of the most annoying in the galaxy. Maybe it's just me, but see what you make of it. www.rpbw.com

Greetings from "Red Stick"!

This is a great photo, for a cell phone! It's wonderful that this factory is now used for concerts and exhibitions - a joining of the worlds of industry and art.

Thank you to everyone of so aprreciated comments.

My cell phone is quite ordinary (Sony Ericsson K750i) but the day was particularly sunny and this, of course, helps !

Annie, not *all* the palace is deputated to classic music performances, but just the auditorium inside of it.

Actually, I love this photo. I love the clean lines of the railing and the beautiful building in the background.
