The Most Genteel City in Italy…

… così viene descritta Torino in un reportage di di cui riporto un succulento nonchè curioso paragrafo:

"Each evening during the citywide passeggiata, Torinese stroll under the city’s arcades from café to café, trading gossip as they sip bicerin (a delicious blend of espresso, hot cocoa, and whipped cream) at bar counters crowded with a dizzying array of elaborate canapés and creamy gianduotti (hazelnut-infused chocolates) free for the nibbling. As the evening wears on, people switch to aperitivi —the original aperatif, vermouth, was developed in Turin in the late 1700s and was later made famous by a local outfit called Martini e Rossi."
