Torino Esposizioni


Torino Exhibitions where was born many years ago the Torino International Auto Show. It's actually used for several exhibitions and lately during the Olympic Games (hockey). It was designed (1949) by Pier Luigi Nervi, a great architect. Of course this photo doesn't reveal anything about the building (that is very beautiful inside) but I loved some contrast typical of Urban Life.

Torino Esposizioni dove nacque il Salone Internazionale dell'Automobile di Torino. Viene attualmente utilizzato per diverse esposizioni e ultimamente durante i Giochi Olimpici (hockey). Venne disegnato (1949) da Pier Luigi Nervi, un grande architetto. Naturalmente questa foto non mostra acunché della costruzione (molto bella all'interno) ma mi sono piaciuti alcuni contrasti tipici dell'Urban Life.

Very nice perspective! stop by my blog . Leonardo ( not da Vinci) is in the spotlight! Grazie for your helpful information Fabrizio!!! I so wish I could show you around the exhibit. What a thrill that would be for me.

Da piccolo mio padre mi ci portava sempre per la fiera dei camper :-D

The contrasts are amazing.

I think this is the first time I've seen you post a modern building since I started visiting! I like the 'dream' painted all over the front — very nice reminder.

I am honored by your visit and comment, Fabrizio. Thank you very much. I will never be a photographer, even just an amateur photographer — and my few good shots are happy accidents. :) I don't have much patience for photography, I'm afraid. But I do like blogging and sharing information, and I am satisfied with that.

I am also completely satisfied that you are here and I can see your beautiful city through your wonderful photographs, and for this I will always be grateful to you.

Che bei colori e geometrie. La scritta "dream" molto evocativa. Le strisce pedonali che ti conducono alla luce. Il blu elettrico del cielo. Uno scatto perfetto.

I've been there so many times that I simply can't recall how many! The point is that this picture is great! Myself, I just can't recognize the place, it seems like it's another place, another city... you should work for an agency and shot for commercials...

Thank you very much Hilda, Marie6 and Massim.

Grazie infinite Rob. In verità mi lusinghi, non è uno scatto perfetto. Sono inoltre felice che anche Trieste, città magnifica, sia, con te, nella community Daily Photo. Verrò presto a farti visita.

Robalferi, like Rob above you flatter me. By the way, thank you very much indeed I'm happy you like it and my way to see it.

I went there every year, as a teen... Quattroruote was my gospel.

Ciao Fab !
