Turin could serve as a model for future post-industrial cities. During the twentieth century, the city developed swiftly beyond its exquisite centre of Paris-style boulevards, which was once Italy’s manufacturing powerhouse, spearheaded by the giant Fiat. However, by the 1980s, global competition had put the brakes on the city’s economy: over 100,000 people had lost their jobs, and once-thriving industry districts had devolved into a barren wasteland. During the winter, the national parks of Gran Paradiso and Val Grande are home to internationally renowned ski resorts. For those who don’t want to brave the slopes, the hills are dotted with groupings of churches dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. City slickers can spend their time in Turin, Piedmont’s most elegant city, exploring the city. Travelers can visit high-end eateries, world-class museums, and marvel at majestic palaces while they are there.
