Garden Stories – Of couples and cats

Turin has a lot of green spots between its jammed streets and big old buildings. A lot of great trees and run and bike routes especially by the river. In spring a lot of new coreographic flowers are ready to be admired and photographed.

In between them you can also find beautiful recycled statues. Telling stories, living their magical or normal life.

At Parco del Valentino, the bigger one, there is a great romantic spot: It’s called “Giardino roccioso”. A beautiful mix of rocks, maples, perfect grass and fountains.
There you can find the most romantic couple of Turin: a couple of sweetly embraced street lamps enjoying their spare time romantically sighing on a green bench.

In Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto there are new installation to visit. Fairies, books and butterflies are always present. 

But I want to talk about my favorite: Giardini Lamarmora in via Cernaia. I will mention the heart-shaped bushes near two benches, but you have to focus on the dapper couple on the white bicycle.

He’s a fancy gentleman with round glasses and an elegant vintage hat. She’s equally vintage and sitting on the crossbar of the bicycle. On the bench under the porch only a rose and a book. On the bicycle a kitten in a basket. In the past there was only the gentleman. Then she arrived on the bench. Now they’re travelling.

Thank you, Rodolfo the gardener. From the bottom of our hearts.
