Via Garibaldi


Do you know that Torino is popular for having streets that cross each other at 90 degree (right corner) like NYC ? This is via Garibaldi from Piazza Statuto to Piazza Castello. In the background in fact there's Palazzo Madama and... in the middle: 1 Km of crowd and shops.

Lo sapevate che Torino è conosciuta per avere le sue vie che si intersecano a 90 gradi (angolo retto) come New York City? Questa è via Garibaldi presa da Piazza Statuto verso Piazza Castello. Sullo sfondo infatti c'è Palazzo Madama e... in mezzo: 1 Km di folla e negozi.

-- Oh ! Thir... Ehm.. Many years ago today I've got my High School Degree. Do you remember when did you get your?

I think via Garibaldi more beautiful than streets of New York. In New York you won't see the glimpse of hilly at the end of the road.

The street scene looks very European to me even tough the streets intersect at 90 degree angles. I remember from Brussels one of my first lessons learned was that I would get lost if I tried to drive around the block given there were few 90 degree intersections ... My high school graduation was in 1971 in May however I don't remember the day.

A lot of italian's immigrants had built a NY. So maybe some solutions were taken from Torino...;)) who knows??
