X'se tagħmel

- What was daily life like in Turin during Fascism and war?
- What has remained in the architecture, culture and in present history?
- How much did the English/American bombing change the city?

If you are intrigued by the idea of immerse yourself in the reality of Turin during the WWII and to see how Fascism crept into the city, this is the perfect tour for you.
We'll see and learn rationalist and post-war architecture, the symbols of the regime around the city, how and where people hided during bombing and my family stories that are not in the history books.

Not loving the long lists of (sometimes) boring and cold dates, I conceived the tour from the point of view of the people of Turin during the war, starting from 15 places of the city that were salient or strictly linked to the regime. At each stop we'll also talk about propaganda, deportations, hunger during the war, the upheaval both of society and even of the language, in a simple and interactive way.

Don't just expect to walk and listen: get ready to chat, discuss the past and present of Turin, way beyond what is on the surface. Consider me like your LOCAL FRIEND, not a guide!

THE SCHEDULE YOU SEE ONLINE IS JUST INDICATIVE.

✓✓✓ Please WRITE to me BEFORE booking how many poeple, dates, hours you wish, also since the tour can be in 4 languages.

I organize my tours only on request.

I want to provide what I look for when I travel: good places to visit, good company and good memories! Consider me your LOCAL FRIEND, not a guide!

I was born and raised in Turin and I am graduated in Art and Cinema History at the University of Turin. Starting from my love for Fascist architecture, I studied what is linked to the regime in Turin, at 360 degrees.

In 2010 I started to work for some relocation companies that support the expats in their "new life" in Turin and for several companies that provide private language tutoring.

I'll be at your complete disposal for any questions you may have about Turin/Italy: what to visit, where to eat, transport, culture, language, etc.

Fejn se tkun

We will walk around the city center, partially under the arcades (great when it rains!).

The places that speak to us of Fascism are all public places, we will go to the streets and squares of Turin that you may already know, but we will reconsider them from an unprecedented, and I would say even emotional, point of view.

Un itinerario insolito e interessantissimo, anche per chi, come me e la mia amica, è di Torino e crede di conoscere abbastanza bene la propria città. Invece Melissoula ci ha aperto la mente su luoghi e dettagli a cui non avevamo mai fatto caso. Un'esperienza consigliatissima!

La visite sur les traces du fascisme à Turin a été passionnante avec Malissoula. Celle-ci connaît bien l'histoire du pays et de Turin. Beaucoup de photos d'époques nous sont présentées. Missoula est de plus est, une personne très chaleureuse et accueillante. Je la recommande totalement !!

Such a great tour for history buffs. She gives it a personal touch with stories of her family during this time, and I really felt like I got a deeper understanding of the city than I would have otherwise. Time flew by!

Melissoula 可以称得上是 “都灵一姐”了~ 我在这个美丽的城市呆了4天,几乎参加了Melissoula所有的experience~(集市体验 以及学习意大利语课程没有参与)真的物超所值,有意义、深刻~ 觉得刷新你对都灵的认知~

We were participating in the tour in two, so it seems very much personalised. We were asking questions and all of them were answered. Melissaoula is very focused on your needs during the trip. We've learned a lot, and met a new friend!♥️ You should surely take this trip while in Turin!

il percorso si svolge attorno a piazze e vie di grande passaggio, ma grazie a questo tour noterete alcuni particolari che vi faranno pensare: come ho fatto a non vederlo prima?
