Torino was probably founded around the third century BC and then transformed into a Roman colony by Augustus, with the name of Iulia Augusta Taurinorum. In the nineteenth century, after the Italian unification, it became the first capital of the Regno d’Italia.
It was hometown of some of the greatest Italian writers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, venue of the XX Olympic Winter Games, birthplace of some of the major Italian symbols in the world such as the Martini, chocolate gianduja and espresso.
Heart of the automotive growth, Torino has also become an important center for information technology, film, aerospace and industrial design.
