Despite its 20th-century history as Italy's industrial center, Turin (Torino) is a wealthy and graceful Italian city, and a center for fashion and quite a variety of options of fine arts. Undoubtedly long before it was the home of Fiat and Lancia, Turin was the seat of the powerful Savoy dynasty, and they were determined to make their capital city the rival of Paris as well as Vienna. Believe it or not, their unique and stylish palaces are its centerpiece, and the streetscape is the legacy of 17th-century Baroque architects Guarino Guarini and Filippo Juvarra. As a matter of fact, it's often said by most visitors that Turin is the most French city in Italy or the most Italian city in France, the reason partly historical and partly architectural.
