evo* 2011 invites you to torino

In 2011, Italy will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its unification. Torino, as the first Italian capital, will be the center of all the celebrations. The investments made to host the 2006 Winter Olympics made the city of Torino and the region Piemonte very attractive and an ideal location to host international events.

Torino is a lively city, rich in cultural events and landmarks. Art and history are very much at home in Torino, and this can be seen by the city’s museums and palazzos, its piazzas, courtyards and churches, its urban development works and exhibitions, its historic relics and avant-garde pieces, its traditions and its progress. With more than 40 museums, Torino will introduce you to many amazing worlds, while its buildings each tell a significant part of the city’s history. In fact, many great architects, city planners and landscapers have played a significant role in Torino development over the centuries and even today, the most important names in architecture are called upon to redesign the city and plan alterations.

Torino is in the heart of Europe, easily accessible:

  • by plane: Torino and Cuneo Airports (many low cost companies fly from all over Europe) and Milano-Malpensa Airport (1.5 hour by bus),
  • by high-speed train: 1.5 hours from Milano, and direct connections with Paris and Lyon.
