TurinEpi July 23

Just like any other good thing in life, Turin Epicurean Capital 2015 came to an end on July 23. 

The third day of the second edition started with the round table facilitated by Maria Pasquale who started by sharing her amazement about Turin during her first time last April. The topic of her round table easily outlined from her memories and the magic happened again: the round table participants were so carried away by their talks that the interpreters were literally left out and after checking with the audience, it was decided they didn't need to translate such long pieces of conversation.

TurinEpi15 July 22

Wednesday, July 22  was a rich day of events for all the Turin Epicurean Capital 2015 guests. We started the day with the second round table facilitated by Daniela Mondino
As there were four guests with a very varied background, Daniela prepared customized questions for each one of them, yet keeping food as the main common topic. 
Daniela introduced herself to explain where her questions where originating, and as a Turinese who had lived in Dublin asked Silvia Baldini about her feelings as a Turinese living in the US.

TurinEpi15 July 21

Putting together Turin Epicurean Capital is the work of years of weaving relationships through the different SoMe accounts where foodies, food professionals and people who have the bug for food and wine converge. This second edition especially showed the power of online contacts and how they can easily materialize in our off line lives.

Turin Epicurean Capital 2015

Last week this time, the second edition of Turin Epicurean Capital was about to start. 
These were 3 full days of events, talks, visits, food and conviviality. At times the guests were so carried away by their topics the interpreters didn't even have the time to translate. But yeah, this is what happens when finally, after tweeting and interacting online on different platforms, a bunch of passionate people meet to talk about their favorite topic: food, wine and life.

10 reasons to visit Turin

Michelle Bottalico is an American photojournalist and photographer who is now living in Turin. Her interest in photography developed from this passion for art and from watching her parents and grandfather take and develop photos in the darkroom. After graduating from college, she decided to embark on a photography career and worked as a newspaper photojournalist and wedding and family photographer in the Philadelphia area for a few years before leaving everything to travel all around Italy. Italy made such an impression on her that she decided to stay and now shoots child and family portraits and weddings here in Turin as well as photographing her travels, Italian life, and the scenery around her whenever she can.

Michelle will take part to Turin Epicurean Capital 2015 with a photo exhibit at Collegio San Giuseppe which will be presented on Tuesday July 21 at 4pm. Michelle's exhibit will be open from July 21 to July 23.
