Beautiful Torino. Romantic Torino. The city is the birthplace of Ernesto Bonino, one of the most important performers of Italian swing in the 1940s. It’s also where Carlo Prato, member of the Eiar (Ente Italiano per le Audizioni Radiofoniche della Rai) discovered the Trio Lescano, another milestone in Swingin’Italy.
Beautiful by day, lively and fascinating by night. You can sit at a table in one of the many historical cafés to breathe in the vintage soul of the city, tasting fine local chocolates o sipping an Americano (Campari and Martini are from right here!).
