Lingotto - La Bolla


This is La Bolla: a crystal enormous ball balanced with heliport (see next days) with a 360 degree panoramic view all over, deputated to conference room. Lingotto building has been revised by Renzo Piano since 1985 and now it's the most important Conference and Business Centre in Torino. Enlarging the photo it's possible to see the parabolic curve that turn on the other building parallel to this one where I took the photo.

Questa è La Bolla: un'enorme sfera di cristallo bilanciata con l'eliporto (cfr. nei prossimi giorni) con una vista panoramica a 360 gradi tutto attorno deputata a sala congressi. Il palazzo del Lingotto è stato rivisitato da Renzo Piano a partire dal 1985 ed ora e il più importante Centro Congressi polifunzionale in Torino. Ingrandendo la foto è possibile vedere la curva parabolica che gira sull'altra costruzione parallela a questa da dove ho scattato la foto.

I think that this is a very unusual and unique structure!

Wow, that is quite a shot! Was it sunrise, Fabrizio, or sunset?
The building looks like something from the movie "2001."

What an imaginative building! And so plenty of room around it, luxurious!

Have a happy spring time, Fabrizio!

I am back but don't look as good as your photo does. Nice shot.

I am not up to normal yet, so am only trying to pop in here and there. As I get better I will try to get back on schedule.

The shots of Lingotto are great. When did you visit? Are tours possible? I think photos following a theme over several days is a good idea and very interesting.
