Signs of Turin

Caffè Platti


Turin may be known for various reasons — home of gianduia, Fiat, Eataly and Italy to name a few — but I think Turin should be known as the la città dei segni, the city of signs.  Walking around the Piedmont capital last weekend I gawked at the ornate signs and store windows.  They’re fancy, posh and manage to both blend into the landscape and standout.  Here are some of my favorites, which one do you like?
