The book “Torino, una storia di tram” ("Turin, a history of trams") is the third part of the journey undertaken with the two previous volumes "Torino inedita vista dal tram” (“Unpublished Turin seen from the tram") and “Torino sconosciuta vista dal tram ("Unknown Turin seen from the tram"). Once again, we take a glimpse of the city from the perspective of some Turin’s greatest press photographers: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In fact, we find many unpublished views of a city that we thought we already knew. Turin, a shy city that has slowly opened itself up. And that it is unveiled only to those who have eyes to look at it in-depth.
Every photo in this book conceals an anecdote, a hidden peculiarity or a little secret. Pieces of life are revealed: a gripping narrative. Hence, we discover the central squares from different perspectives, the incredible transformation of a rural landscape into a square teeming with life and work, or the astonishing interurban tramways that connected Turin with the surrounding villages. You will find almost a hundred images, mostly unpublished, and many anecdotes perfect for those who... thought they knew everything about Turin!
