Back in Torino, the former capital of Italy in the 1870's, is now a political and industrial centre and rather dull compared to the beautiful Tuscan country side in my opinion. Though, it is well-known for its Baroque, Rococo and Neo-classical architecture. Built by Sicilan architect Filippo Juvarra, he modelled them on the Baroque and classical style of Versailles. I always find European cities so much more majestic and romantic because of its stylish architecture.
Wandering around the streets, I found a trio of elegant ladies taking their afternoon tea at the Caffe Baratti.X
