Torino's Railway Station


There are almost three important railways station in Torino but Porta Nuova is actually the main (take a look about the beautiful example of art nouveau style). However since ages they are working in it and out of it (façade) and nobody knows when we'll have back it again maybe lit up as it was. I can't wait to take a night photo of it.

Ci sono circa tre importanti stazione ferroviarie a Torino ma Porta Nuova è attualmente la più importante (da notare lo stupendo esempio di stile Liberty). Da secoli tuttavia è in fase di ristrutturazione interna ed esterna e nessuno ha idea quando finalmente essi termineranno e magari verrà nuovamete illuminata di notte. Non vedo l'ora di poterla fotografare di sera.

A wonderful art nouveau style railway station indeed! I wish we couldn't easily travel by train like in Italy! Grazie

It is very grand - high time it was working again so that its beauty can be appreciated in action.

It looks lovely, I agree. But I see it every morning before 7 when I set off on my long journey to Milan. And, like you say, it is always undergoing work so there are 'disaggi'. Not a happy place for me.

We're all waiting for the building to be restored, as soon as it can be! At night the outlook of the entrance is simply awesome!
