a royal tour of Turin
To close this 8th edition of Turin Epicurean Capital we did want to give you a taste of our royal legacy and how we live it nonchalantly on a daily basis.
We are indeed surrounded by art and history, and yet we can't help marveling at what we have!
Follow Lucia in her sample tour starting in Piazza Castello where we have 2 royal palaces: the one for the King or Palazzo Reale and the one for the Queen or Palazzo Madama. Don't underestimate the collections of this last one as you are allowed to the stacks too!

Rosa Serafino since 1875
When you make it to Turin you'll soon realize that it is indeed a bottomless treasure chest full of hidden gems! In this 8th edition of Turin Epicurean Capital we just wanted to give you a glimpse over a tiny part of our precious places and we did want to include one of the oldest herbal shops in town, the only one founded by a woman back in the 19th century.
Rosa Serafino founded her herbal shop or l'erboristeria della Consolata in Piazza della Consolata 5 in front of the famous Basilica, back in 1875 and her shop is still in the same location and preserves its original wood furniture.
A real stargate to a world and a time already gone, where there is no need of a/c in the summer thanks to the special microclimate this old building provides. Giulia, a graduate in herbal sciences accepted to tell us about their products and history.

turinepi21 w Myanmar / Burma
This 8th edition of Turin Epicurean Capital is dedicated to and in support of the people of Myanmar who underwent the coup and who are still fighting for their democracy everyday 😰
With them in mind, all the turinepi21 vids show Lucia wearing the work of a talented Burmese tailor🧵 - sarta in italiano - based in Yangon.
Follow our friends ➡️ New Education Highway on their IG to know what happens in Burma as it is quite hard to get their news in other countries. Read about and get to know some of the activists and may peace 🕊 democracy, economical stability AND health be re-established soon 🙏
