Turin synagogue

Everyone knows Italy is a Roman Catholic country with some religious minorities. Many Italophiles are aware of the ghetto in Rome and Venice but very few people know that the Italian Jews have been living in the boot since the Roman times!

Artist club

Turin is a treasure chest full of unique secret places that will always amaze you! To be honest, most of these gems are unknown to many locals too and are far too often disregarded... So today we are bringing you to the Turin's Artist Club or Circolo Degli Artisti.

Circolo degli Artisti e Circolo dei Lettori (different floors)

This is one of the oldest artist clubs in Italy founded in 1847 by a group of artists who wanted to meet regularly to contribute to the growth of literature and arts. Over the years, this club moved to different locations but when it reached 779 members in 1858, it moved to Via Bogino 9, in the 17the century Palazzo  Granieri della Roccia that hosted it till 2018. Today, you can still enjoy an elegant lunch or dinner and visit the Club's library in the Circolo degli Artisti's old headquarters.

Ms Sharma of Piedmont

We started preparing turinepi22 one year ago these days and the first person we interviewed was our very own "Ms Sharma of Piedmont" aka Jyothi Aimino.

If you are a fan of Bridgerton and have been a Turinepi follower for quite some time, by now you know most of Jyothi Aimino's story.

St. Augustine Church

 More than ever the world need the collective prayers to restore peace, democracy and human rights in too many parts of the world, thus we are resuming our church pilgrimage in Turin with one of the many little churches in the Roman lanes, downtown Turin: Chiesa di Sant'Agostino in Via Sant'Agostino at the corner with Via Santa Chiara, near pedestrian Via Garibaldi.

First of all put Via Sant'Agostino on your Turin eatery list as you will find plenty and for all tastes and needs! This lane connects Via Garibaldi to Piazza Emanuele Filiberto where more trendy eateries are located. In fact, as the temperatures go up, Piazza Emanuele Filiberto gets a distinct Montmartre atmosphere highly loved by both locals and visitors.
