We are happy to start a new series of posts, focusing on travelling and how photography leads us to new destinations. Each photographer has a different point of view, and that’s what makes each perspective so interesting. With the help of our awesome community, we are ready to travel all over the world, through your special photo journey. We are starting with Turin (Italy) as seen in the eyes of Vittorio Motta, or else @vittomotta.
Turin, or Torino in Italian, is an important city in northern Italy and is the capital of the Piedmont region. Its famous history and culture make it a business and cultural centre, while it was also the first capital of Italy back in 1861.
As for the sports fans, Turin is proud for its famous football teams Juventus FC and Torino FC, while it also hosted the Winter Olympics of 2006. Another reason to know Turin is the fact that it is the home of FIAT and you definitely need to visit one of the numerous art galleries, palaces, theatres, libraries, and museums.
