Architecture

Within the Piedmont tourist offering, a place of distinction is occupied by the artistic and cultural heritage present in cities and towns, which are rich in evidence of different historical periods: from Romanesque style to Neo-Classical up to Baroque and Modern Art.

From the eighteenth century, Torino became popular as one of the capital cities of European Baroque, with its sumptuous royal residences, impressive church-domes and palaces. From the end of nineteenth and the beginning of twentieth century it was the Italian capital city of Art-Nouveau.
