Turin

Turin was the first capital of Italy                                                                                                                                

Turin is a city and an important business and cultural center in northern Italy, capital of the Piedmont region, located mainly on the left bank of the river Po, in front of the Susa Valley and surrounded by the western Alps. The city has a population of about 950,000.
Turin has a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries, restaurants, churches, palaces, opera houses, parks, gardens, theatres, libraries, museums and other venues. It is well known for its renaissance, baroque, rococo, neo-classical, and art nouveau architecture. Many of the city’s public squares, castles, gardens and elegant buildings such as Palazzo Madama, were built in the 16th and 18th centuries, after the capital of the Duchy of Savoy (later Kingdom of Sardinia) was moved to Turin from Chambery as part of the urban expansion. Turin is sometimes called the cradle of Italian liberty, for having been the birthplace and home of notable politicians and people who contributed to the Risorgimento, such as Cavour.
Prestigious and important museums, such as the Museo Egizio and the Cinema Museum inside at the Mole Antonelliana are also situated in the city. Turin’s several monuments and sights make it one of the world’s top 250 tourist destinations, and the tenth most visited city in Italy.
