comedy set

work NY Times.com Ferzetti was cast in this romantic comedy set in the Tigullio Gulf alongside Alberto Sordi, Michèle Morgan, Marcello Mastroianni, Sylva Koscina, Dorian Gray, Franca Marzi, Franco Fabrizi and Jorge Mistral. In 1959, Ferzetti starred alongside Andrée Debar and Isa Miranda as Bernard Turquet de Mayenne in the French historical comedy ''Le secret du Chevalier d'Éon''. Directed by Jacqueline Audry, the film is set in Burgundy (Burgundy (French region)) in 1728. He later appeared in Carlo Ludovico Bragaglia's ''Annibale (Annibale (film))'' alongside Victor Mature, Rita Gam, Milly Vitale and Rik Battaglia. The film is set during the Roman Empire; Ferzetti played Fabius Maximus. Despite the financial misery, the club – now re-formed under the name of Parma F.C. in 2004 – sought to continue to work to its goals and the summer of 2006 saw the upper part of the ''Tribuna Est'' removed in preparation for a new grandstand. The tragic death of Parma fan Matteo Bagnaresi led supporters to change the name of the Curva Nord to the Curva Nord Matteo Bagnaresi in his honour. On 31 March 2008, Bagnaresi, a member of Boys Parma 1977, a group of over 100 Parma ultras, was run over on the way to Turin's Stadio Olimpico (Stadio Olimpico di Torino) by a coach which was carrying the opposition Juventus fans, although the extent of intent is not known.

'''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).
