While walking the streets of Turin, we’ve run into fellow big fans of this city. Some are born and raised here, while others come from afar – but they all live in Turin, each with a different point of view on it, sharing their particular discoveries via our blog, Le strade di Torino. Let us introduce them to you!
Anna works as an architect, but during her free time she has a lot of hobbies. She loves travelling and taking pictures, getting away from the big smoke and being surrounded by nature. But it doesn’t stop there – Anna is fascinated by handcrafts and the creation of objects, after having studied at Lisbon University where she learned to work with wood and clay. Being a good Italian, she loves tasty food, but only in the company of friends and family.

I’m Carola, an aspiring architect that loves flowers, fruits of the garden and to take care of it. My dream is to open a flower concept store/coffee shop in Paris. I like colored wide skirts and I could never live without a cat. I’m an ice-cream lover in every seasons and cheese is my favorite food. I’m a sporty girl who can not live with some mountains near. I love to discover and take pictures of it. For “Le Strade di Torino” I, being a celiac girl, would like to share my passions and gluten free kitchen in and around Turin.
