Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour
Turin

Turin citizens gather around the new statue of Camillo Benso Count of Cavour (1810-1861), made by sculptor Fabio Viale in white Carrara marble, inaugurated by Giorgio Napolitano, President of the Italian Republic on march 18th, 2011.

The writing on the flag says: "Mr. President, don't let the cradle of art become its grave", in controversy against the recent governative cuts to culture global budget.

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.
