the buildings look like soldiers standing guard for the hills. And oddly, the hills look very much like ours in Altadena.

Love it when you can get a vantage point to take views like this - reminds me of Pza Venezia in Roma.

Happy weekend, Fabrizio.

grazie di cuore per tutte le splendide foto! io sono una torinese innamorata della città e al momento mi trovo a Oslo da 3 mesi per l'erasmus... questo blog è la mia finestra su Torino e la foto di oggi parla dei luoghi che attraverso ogni mattina per andare all'università. Grazie!

Chiara, grazie di cuore a te per il tuo per me toccante intervento. In verità io sono solo un cronista testimone dell'infinita bellezza della nostra città. Un abbraccio di tanti auguri per i tuoi studi e... Tutto! - Fabrizio.

Caro Fabrizio, condivido quanto scrive Chiara. Sono in Inghilterra ma ho studiato a Torino e nella tua foto s'intravede uno "stralcio" di Palazzo Nuovo dove ho studiato tanti anni fa! Grazie anche da parte mia. Saluti Antonella (UK)

Bellissimo volare alto ed allontanarsi da quello stramaledetto traffico! Dettagli incantevoli. Grazie.

Complimenti per il blog, le tue foto sono bellissime!

I'd no idea from the ground that the two streets are so close together. When we visited Turin we went between these streets by Via Rossini.

Enjoying these new aspects of your beautiful city!

Grazie Brit
Thank you Lindab

Ma dove ti sei arrampicato ?
(comunque ne valeva la pena).

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

G@tto, sono al secondo piano di Palazzo Madama dai vetri dell'unica finestra in genere senza tenda protettiva davanti a cui però è seduta una delle assistenti al museo. La signorina presente quando l'ho visitato io, molto molto gentilmente, si è alzata lasciandomi lo spazio per fotografare-

Fabrizio,

quite peculiar and unique perspective you are showing here, indeed... Hardly imaginable or detectable at street level when crossing the two pictured streets under the arcades.

Being a "history-nut", you know how much I like your city for the key role it played in our country recent (from an historical stand-point, so in the past two centuries ;-)) history!

You should "spare a dime" on this with your fellow bloggers more often, explaining better what's behind the buildings and the sights that you are showing! ;-)

However, is the building in the lower left corner of the picture the Teatro Regio (Royal Theatre), one of the Italian Opera Temples?
I suppose it is...

Thanks again for the images you are publishing, testifying every day how wonderful Italy can be, also far and out of the usual and most widely known touristic paths!

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

Thank you very much Cesare ! Yes, that one on the left it is the Royal Opera Theatre. I am happy you appreciate my job and you are right when you invite me to better describe explaining details about buildings. Honestly I prefer to write quite short captions (maybe with some link to Wikipedia or so) because I am the first who don't read long and detailed descriptions. :-)

Cesare this is a good opportunity to ask you:
1. your new email address
2. to send me that form I'm waiting since we met last time ;-)

Hugs !

Wow, that is really astounding. And I agree with an earlier comment (Altadena Hiker), your mountains look a lot like the Santa Monica Mountains here in Los Angeles.
