The Italian Torino, or Turin as it is known in Great Britain, is the third largest and most important city in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Here is the centre of Italian car manufacturing and the main centre for Fiat. The city is in North West Italy, the capital city of the Piemonte region at the foot of the Alps, the Po River steps out from the hills to the lowlands here.
Turin is a nice city with a typical downtown, and with a lot of green areas in the city. Two shows were held here over the weekend of the 5th & 6th of July. The Mondovi International Show with 995 entries was held on Saturday, and the Torino International Show (the 81st) with 1,347 entries was held on Sunday. The show was held in the Lignotto Fiere Oval, a huge show hall, both sides of the hall were glass, which meant a lot of natural light in the hall, but thankfully for a July Italian day, the hall was fully air conditioned. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough carpet in the rings, some of them just had a tape of carpet and some dogs were sliding about.
