Turin is one of the most vibrant and active cities in Northern Italy. Thanks to its position at the foot of the Alps, Turin has a truly European vocation, confirmed by the presence in the city of several international agencies.
Turin is a city with a thousand faces: a centre of finance and industry, international trade and a meeting point – but it is at the same time a beautiful and pleasant city to live in, one with a unique and distinctive atmosphere. Indeed, Turin is a city that looks towards the future, confident of its historical legacy of material and cultural resources. In 2011 Italy celebrated the 150th anniversary of national unification. From 1861 to 1865 Turin was the capital city of Italy, the capital was then moved to Florence and finally to Rome in 1871.
