Frozen Fountain of the twelve months in Valentino Park
Turin

Unusually low temperatures at these latitudes (-16° C in the night) have completely frozen the surface of some fountains in Turin, like the Fountain of the Twelve Months, created by architect Carlo Ceppi for the 1898 National Exhibition.

More About Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
