Quadrilatero Romano


This is the first (and the less intriguing but give the idea) of some photos I'll go to publish in next days about Quadrilatero Romano (see also HERE in English). Today it's one of most charming area in Torino where restaurants, cafe, night clubs fill up the night. Especially in Summer it's exciting to have a dinner or get a drink surrounded by these old walls and full of history. P.S. Quadrilatero in English is... four-sided and Romano is Romanesque. It means a very old area just at Romanesque doors. Torino in fact has been founded by Romans around 27 b.c. that called it Augusta Taurinorum.

Questa è la prima (e la meno intrigante ma dà l'idea) di alcune fotografie che andrò a inserire nei giorni a veire e che concernono il Quadrilatero Romano (cfr. anche QUI). Oggi è una delle zone più affascinanti di Torino dove ristoranti, caffé e locali notturni, riempiono la notte. Specialmente in estate è affascinante cenare o semplicemente bere una cosa circondati da queste vecche mura piene di storia. P.S. Quadrilatero Romano perché si riferisce ad una zona nel cuore storico della città fondata dai Romani attonro al 27 a.c. col nome di Augusta Taurinorum.

I agree with John, that the sky is amazing.
I love the buildings - great design to the upper floors, especially. A warm glow to the lights, too.

I went to the English link to read about the place. I think it's great that it has been re-energized and is now a popular hang-out. Looking forward to your guided tour.

Yes, looking forward to the tour...but yet again, the curse of the parked car is evident.

Sounds an amazing place, Fabrizio!

The twilight sky in this photo is very good. Food and drinks sound good as well.
