S.Carlo Church down there


I am in via Roma and down there where porticos end there's the church of San Carlo that also gives its name to the square: Piazza San Carlo.

Sono in via Roma e al fondo dei portici si vede la Chiesa di San Carlo di cui all'omonima piazza: Piazza San Carlo.

Is the Pope planning a visit any time soon at your University? Will he be welcomed? Surely the Vatican's opinions on Galileo are not new :-)

What a lovely walk down to the church. Are they stores on the right?

I like the perspective of everything leading your eye to the church.

Very majestic walk way.

Just beautiful - stunning. Looks a very expensive part of Turin - sure the shops are very upmarket and great places to eat and drink. Wonderful!

@Clarice, 1. For sure not (I hope) - 2. I really don't know... I wish he will not - 3. That's a fact ;-)

@Pat, yes they are. Via Roma is in two parts (with Piazza San Carlo in the middle) and plenty of "upmarket" shops

@Jilly, yes you're in right. Via Roma it's the most elegant street of the city (not exactly the most beautiful in my taste)

@Nikon and b.c., and zentmrs, Thank you :-)

You impressed me most about this photo is how smooth and polished the floor looks. It looks so clean too.

Very cool!! I like ho you framed the church. Seems like we can shop till we drop in your city, rain or shine: there seem to be so many covered sidewalks! Nice!

Your blog is stunning. I lived in Torino for a year working with Banco San Paolo for the Olympics.

As a matter of fact for some months my office was right here where you are taking the photo - thru two heavy metal doors. It was a beautiful experience.

I loved during games-time watching all the Romans and Neopolitans and Venezians arriving to Torino ... their mouths agape at how beautiful the provencial city they liked to make fun of really was.
