Turin’s sunset in Piazza Solferino
One of the most famous historic squares of Turin is Piazza Solferino, located at busy center of the city.
The realization of Piazza Solferino started in the second half of the nineteenth century, after the dismantling of the fortifications of the Citadel of Turin in 1852.
The main decoration of the square is the fountain Angelica with four groups of statues that refer to the four seasons.
The esoteric legend says that between the statues there is a magic door, a gate to the infinite.
At the center of the square you see the Atrium pavilions designed by Giugiaro fallen into disuse after the Turin’s Winter Olympic Games.
I live in Turin in a small road just on the back of Piazza Solferino and one day I find myself amazed by the reflexes images on the Atrium during a sunset. So I ran at home to get my Canon 450D and started to take the photos below.
- the images have been realized using a digital SLR Canon 450D, wait to load completely the page before click on the photos, be aware that it can take several seconds -
