Description

Having revamped the stately, elegant historic centre, Turin's city fathers are now preparing to stun visitors to the 2006 Winter Olympics here with a slew of ambitious new projects which, they hope, will make Turin a worthy rival to Italy's other historic' tourist destinations and give it the edge in the contemporary art and architecture stakes. In the first edition of our "Turin Guide", Time Out's resident writers delve into the city's regal past and cutting-edge present, to guide readers through immense artistic wealth and through the latest additions to Turin's art showcases, including architect Renzo Piano's bubble' atop, a classic Fiat building, and the dramatic Sandretto Re Rebaudengo exhibition space. But the "Turin Guide" also goes further afield, to the glorious countryside of the Piedmonte region with its exquisite wines, great ski-slopes and sought-after truffles.
