Via Po


Photo Information
Shot early in the morning after sunrise from Piazza Castello, Turin.

The plan for the street was drawn up in 1673 by architect Amedeo di Castellamonte, and via Po soon became known for being one of the most beautiful streets in Europe. The 1,250 meters of porticos on both sides of the street start from piazza Castello and arrive at piazza Vittorio Veneto, two steps away form the Po and from the Murazzi. Today via Po is one of the main commercial streets of the city center: on the right (going towards the river) there is an endless line of café’s, shops and bookstores; on the left you’ll find Palazzo degli Stemmi, Palazzo dell’Universitŕ and outdoor used books stands. And from here you’re just around the corner from the Mole Antonelliana and the Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria.

Great capture, fine conversion. I particularly like those confused wires.
