So what do the locals do during these two months?
- tons of art exhibits in all our museums and castles,
- many concerts at Teatro Regio, Auditorium del Lingotto, Auditorium Rai where the Italian symphony orchestra was born!
- Contemporary music is also very much appreciated and lots of rock and pop stars choose Turin for their only Italian concert too, so always keep an eye on the calendar of the Turin events!

Early January is for the winter sales, as the sale seasons are regulated by the Italian government, this is a big event all over the boot! The ski week is in February, some years it coincides with Mardi Gras, but as Martedì Grasso is set 40 days before Easter, its date is different every year, thus the ski week tends to be around V-day.

Turin and Piedmont always give you many excuses to visit all year long and no matter the month, you will always experience a different side of our local life!
