Torino – San Salvario, between sub-alpine severity and Oriental fantasies
San Salvario is, without doubt, one of the most particular districts of Torino.

Vintage and typical product in Torino markets
The market mirrors social changes, it is a snapshot of man's evolution and history. Before being a place of exchange, the market is a meeting place for the entire community. “A town without markets - writer Tahar Ben Jelloun, who lives in Torino, says - is a dull place”.
