La Consolata


Sub title: "Eating while 150 years of history is watching you". The church in the background is very popular in Torino. It's called the Sanctuary of Maria Consolatrice (la Consolata). More details, tomorrow.

Amo Torino e apprezzo i torinesi per come rispettano i loro splendidi monumenti.

How beautiful this is - and how wonderfully lit. It's like a stage set.

Thanks so much for comments on Menton DP yesterday, Fabrizio. I've used your comment on my posting today.

I have to admit, the Italians love and respect their old buildings more so than anyone else, except maybe the French. I wish the US government would show that kind of honor to our old buildings too, especially in NYC.

La Consolata is so beautifully lit and presented in your photo. It just goes to show how proud you guys are of your history. Bravo!

Wonderful! Looks great, and you must enjoy summers immensely. We were just at a film festival in Locarno in Ticino, the Italian-speaking canton of Switzerland, and we tried to attend a movie in the Piazza Grande, except it started to rain pretty hard and we gave up -- don't know how many stayed until the end of the film. :-)
