Today I'd like to travel in Piedmont and visit Turin the first capital of Italy.

Piedmont is land of extraordinary fascination, between art and history, nature and culture, sport and tradition.

 Turin is also the Italian capital of the automobile industryFiat: one of the world's largest and famous companies in the world!

Located in the city, near the historical center, you can visit National Automotive Museum.

 Its transformation from a means of transport to an object of worship, from its origins right up to the contemporary evolution of creative thought, and all this is done with spectacular displays showing off the valuable pieces in the collection.

You can visit nineteen rooms telling the story of the twentieth century, taking in Futurism, the First World War, the advent of the utilitarian car, the Italian school of body work, the discovery of aerodynamics, female emancipation, the race towards mass production, the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Also, you can enjoy the American advertising slogans, examples of consumerism and ecology.

It’s a story with many different threads, the guiding principle being to make us understand how far the motor car influenced, conditioned and favoured the most distinctive historical, economic, artistic and social events of the last century.

 At last, you are driven into the world of design: the creative path that precedes the production of a motor cars.

Design identifies an era because it is an expression of the culture prevailing during that era.

When you finish your visit, you can admire The Piazza.

 The Piazza is an internal, covered courtyard at the centre of the Museum - the result of a transformation carried out by the architect Cino Zucchi in the complex restoration-work on the building.
 This is the beating heart of the Museum and is a place for meetings and cultural exchanges!
 
Leisure me: this is my tourism!
