The first grand capital of the House of Savoy becoming later the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy, it is also regarded as one of the European capitals of the Baroque style, the automobile, chocolate. A royal historical capital and technological centre, it is a fascinating and unexpected city. The automotive industry was born here, together with electricity, aeronautics, the cinema and radio, as well as some of the most famous brands in the world: Lavazza, Ferrero, Martini and Carpano. The originality of Turin is therefore to be found in its capacity to combine tradition and innovation, experience and experimentation and to present itself as a dynamic reality, a sort of laboratory, active in the world of art, culture, sport, science and work. Today, Turin is a reality committed to a modernization process that is unique in the Italian panorama.
