T is for Turin , home of the 'Italian Job'

by sourbugger

"Your only supposed to blow the bloody doors off..."

Torino, italy is of course the setting for one of the most famous comedy films of all time.. the classic 'italian Job' starring Michael Caine from 1969.

For those who have never seen film, the basic plot is that a group of London Gangsters take a pile of FIAT gold by causing a massive traffic Jam in Turin. The only way out of the city is my the nimble mini-coopers decked out appropriately enough, in red white and blue.

The chase sequence at the end of the film is possibly one of the longest and most fondly remembered in cimema history.

There is a company that will escort you around the sights, or for an extra charge actually in a mini. They website is wonderful and shows that they are true afficianardos of the film.

You could of course do the same thing yourself armed with a portable DVD player, a good city map and a bit research off the net !

Update : May 2004.

The company was featured in the 'Driving' section of the Sunday times on the 9th May. I also learnt there that the head of Fiat talked the Torinese authorities into staging a real traffic jam for the cameras - many of the reaction shots on the film with people slamming their hand on horns and the like are in fact real - it could only happen in Italy. Bravo !

Update : Aug 04. The company mentioned above have just e-mailed me. They point out that to find the locations yourself would take ages - they have put a great deal of time and effort into finding virtually every location - look 'em up if your in town.

Turin - Torino, Italy

by lichinga

"Forecoming crisis....."

Torino, the city of FIAT, a pleasant and quiet city in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. Surrounded by mountains, but close to the sea. The Po river crosses Torino, as you may see in the picture it is not a very large river, though it's the most important one in Italy.

TURIN/TORINO ITALY

" THE SHROUD OF TURIN"

IF YOU LIKE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT MYSTERIES ..MAYBE YOU WOULD BE INTO THIS ONE!!!!!!!If this is a burial wrapping -- and it is hard to imagine what else it might be -- we must confront a simple reality. Burial cloths do not survive tombs. Certainly, the only way that this burial cloth could exist is if it was separated from the body before decomposing flesh ravaged it. That would happen within just a few days. And it goes without saying that the tomb must have been open in order to retrieve the cloth.For those who believe in the resurrection, the shroud can be exciting and mysterious. For those who wonder about the story, the shroud is something to think about............................... The Shroud remained with the de Charny family for about one hundred years. It then passed into the hands of the Savoy family. It remained a possession of the Savoy family until well into the 20th century when it was willed to the Pope in Rome.
Stunning developments between 2002 and 2005 provide new information. The shroud is possibly 2000 years old
. The scientific study of the Turin Shroud is like a microcosm of the scientific search for God: it does more to inflame any debate than settle it. . . .

And yet, the shroud is a remarkable artifact, one of the few religious relics to have a justifiably mythical status. It is simply not known how the ghostly image of a serene, bearded man was made.Not only does this show that the image on the Shroud is not a photograph or painting, it shows that something extraordinary occurred to form the image “ A determination of the kinetics of vanillin loss suggests that the shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old. ”

Exploring the road atlas, I was quite fascinated by the length of some roads. Surely, it is the question of naming the European roads, - and it is a huge question for me who decides how this or that chunk of road must be numbered, - but still, you can drive through several different countries along the road that is marked same in your road atlas. Here are some roads, which I would like one day to drive through. This is not an instruction or recommended plan, just a result of someone's curiosity...

Travel Tips for Torino

Best Mixed Fruit Cocktails in Torino

by Jetgirly about Lobelix

Lobelix is located in Piazza Savoia, right beside the giant obelisk. It is a funky bar spread over two well-decorated floors, with tons of seating and great views of the crowds below. The highlight is the extensive cocktail list, featuring a huge selection of fruity cocktails all costing EUR 6. Many include real, fresh fruit, and they are all delicious!

There are some fruit smoothie type drinks with no alcohol, they cost the same amount as a regular drinks. My favorite drinks are the Lobelix Fruit Mix (with strawberry and kiwi), or a Strawberry-Lychee Margarita.

Obelisk also does a nightly aperitivo, with fresh food coming out of the kitchen in a continuous stream. Dishes tend to be tuna-heavy but if you're patient you can find lots of pizzas, pastas and mixed vegetable dishes.
