Turin was not only once Italy’s provisional capital, but is also one of its most important university cities and much more than the headquarters of the Fiat Group. Bordered by the Alps to the west, Turin forms the center of Piedmont and is reminiscent of neighboring France in its baroque splendor architecture and numerous cafés. Turin’s piazzas, however, enchant their guests in a decidedly Italian way: this is where people meet, chat, eat and let God be a good man. Piazza Vittoria is one of the most spacious squares in Europe and stretches all the way to the banks of the Po River. In recent decades, Turin’s annual international book fair has made the city an important meeting place for publishers, authors and frahlingen.
