What is Turin known for?

starting position

December 1968 Juventus In the summer of 1994, Ferrara transferred to Turin based club, Juventus F.C., and was quickly introduced into the starting eleven, making over 40 total appearances for the club in all competitions in his first season, scoring 1 goal. He is considered one of the best central defenders of his generation, not giving up his starting position for the club for the next 10 years. He also captained the team from 1995 to 1996 and became one of the most experienced and decorated players of the past two decades, winning eight Serie A championships, six of which were with Juventus, and two with Napoli. Ferrara was also part of two Coppa Italia titles (one with each team), three Supercoppa Italiana titles (two with Juventus, one with Napoli) and several European competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, Intercontinental Cup (European South American Cup) and European Super Cup). His role as captain, though, was taken over by fellow Italian Alessandro Del Piero in 1996. Throughout his Juventus career Ferrara played an important role in Juventus' backline, with his vast experienced and dominating defensive style. Throughout his 12 year tenure with the club, Ferrara formed impressive defensive partnerships with the likes of Mark Iuliano, Moreno Torricelli, Paolo Montero, Gianluca Pessotto, Lilian Thuram, Alessandro Birindelli, Igor Tudor, Gianluca Zambrotta, Nicola Legrottaglie, and Fabio Cannavaro. Juventus had what was considered as the best defence in the world at this time, and teams strongly regretted ever going down a goal to the club, as they knew how hard it would be to score one back for themselves. In the 1996–1997 season, one of his peak seasons, he scored four goals in 32 Serie A competitions, while also being capped eight times internationally. Ironically, his first professional match, while at Napoli, was played against Juventus in a 0–0 draw. Following the ''Scudetto'' winning 2004–2005 Serie A season, Ferrara, along with veteran teammates Mark Iuliano and Paolo Montero called it quits on their Juventus careers. While Montero returned to Uruguay and Iuliano opted to join smaller clubs to conclude his career, while Ferrara retired from football in May 2005 at the age of 38. Ferrara made just 4 Serie A appearances in his final season with the club. Popular support When the Socialists came out in the late 1890s, they were present only in rural Emilia-Romagna and southern Lombardy, where they won their first seats of the Chamber of Deputies (Italian Chamber of Deputies), but they soon enlarged their base in other areas of the country, especially the urban areas around Turin, Milan, Genoa and, to some extent, Naples, densely populated by industrial workers. In the 1900 general election (Italian general election, 1900) the party won 5.0% of the vote and 33 seats, its best result so far. Emilia-Romagna was confirmed as the Socialist heartland (20.2% and 13 seats), but the party did very well also in Piedmont and Lombardy.

, Milan, Turin, and Naples. Apéritifs became very popular in Europe in the late 19th century. The popularity in Europe crossed the Atlantic and by 1900, they were also commonly served in the United States. The apéritif recrossed the Atlantic in the 1970s: the habit of a substantial food offering with the purchase of a drink during "Happy Hour" in the United States pushed the development of a more food-heavy apéritif in Italy as well.

special version

and very fast automobile built on a racing chassis. The car was never fully developed and the cost of sending chassis from England to Italy and back for final assembly made it so expensive that only a few were produced. Production ended in 1973 after only 80 cars (29 convertibles and 51 coupes) were finished. In 1970, a special version of the coupé was built. It was based on an extended bodyshell that Frua built for Monteverdi (Monteverdi (car)) which was supposed to become the second ''Monteverdi 375 L''. After the alliance of Monteverdi and Frua split off in Summer 1969, that bodyshell remained in the Frua works in Turin. A year or so later Frua changed some details on front and rear, including some semi-hidden headlamps which had been seen on the ''Iso Lele'' and the ''Iso Grifo'', second series, before. The car was called AC 429; it remained a one-off. It still exists. WikiPedia:Turin Dmoz:Regional Europe Italy Regions Piedmont Localities Turin Commons:Category:Turin

'''Turin''' (

The city has a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries (art museum), restaurants, churches (church (building)), palaces, opera houses, piazzas, parks, gardens, theatres, libraries, museums and other venues. Turin is well known for its renaissance (Renaissance architecture), baroque, rococo, neo-classical (Neoclassicism), and art nouveau (Art Nouveau) architecture.

Much of the city's public square (Town square)s, castles, gardens and elegant ''palazzi (palazzo)'' such as Palazzo Madama (Palazzo Madama, Turin), were built in the 16th and 18th century, after the capital of the Duchy of Savoy (later Kingdom of Sardinia) was moved to Turin from Chambery (nowadays France) as part of the urban expansion.

Turin is sometimes called ''the cradle of Italian liberty'', for having been the birthplace and home of notable politicians and people who contributed to the ''Risorgimento (Italian unification)'', such as Cavour (Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour).

The city used to be a major European political centre, being Italy's first capital city in 1861 and being home to the House of Savoy, Italy's royal family.

Turin is well known as the home of the Shroud of Turin, the football teams Juventus F.C. and Torino F.C., the headquarters of automobile manufacturers FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, Iveco and as host of the 2006 Winter Olympics and, in the same year, the 37th Chess Olympiad. Several International Space Station modules, such as Harmony (Harmony (ISS module)) and Columbus (Columbus (ISS module)), were also manufactured in Turin. It was the capital of the Duchy of Savoy from 1563, then of the Kingdom of Sardinia ruled by the Royal House of Savoy and finally the first capital of the unified Italy (Italian unification).

It is often referred to as ''the Capital of the Alps''. Other popular epithets are ''the Automobile Capital of Italy'' and the ''Detroit (Detroit, Michigan) of Italy'', as it is home of FIAT; in Italy it is also dubbed ''la capitale Sabauda'' ( the Savoyard (Savoyard (grape)) capital).
