Bella Torino! Foodporn, elegance and soapboxrace

In the north of Italy in Piedmont  – Turin or Torino – you find elegance, chocolate, fantastic architecture, a great film museum with its glass elevator and a fabulous fresh fruit and vegetable market.

Torino used to be the capital of Italy, it was popularized as the best selling car “fiat” and has the most iconic football team “juventus Turin” and 2006 the Winter Olympics were held there as well.

The baroque cafes and architecture and its labyrinth arcaded shopping promenades and museums, funky aperitvo bars, welcomes every tourist…including me.

Last year, 2014, I had the great opportunity to visit this wonderful city. Not to mention that Torino was always on my must-see list, I was so super excited to work there.

While we were walking through the city for location scouting I took some shots of the arcades and the wonderful view of the city.

Torino is also known for the best wine and cheese. More than 160 cheeses are to be found in the Piedmont region. At the open air market you can do food tastings and eat and eat and eat.

Torino has so many museums! It’s so hard to tell everything about its beauty. But this link is the best to choose.

From my side I can say the film museum “museo cinema” was the best for me! Of course, being a filmmaker I was so overwhelmed. You have to go there. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Oh and yes I mentioned I had to work: yep I had a lot of fun for the soap box derby!

I didn’t know what I should expect but Italians are not only gourmets, they’re are very creative and funny when it comes to competing:
