Baratti & Milano

You will find this treasure near the entrance to the Galleria dell'Industria Subalpina under the arches of Piazza Castello. An old confectionery, it was opened in 1873 by partners Milano and Baratti who soon gained the title of 'suppliers to the royal household'. It is almost a ritual here to have tea or hot chocolate accompanied by an assortment of Bignole, sweet pastry cases filled with Zabaglione, vanilla, chocolate or hazelnut, all with a glazed topping. The bronze bas-reliefs on the façade, the brass clock, the large mirrors, and the lamps date back to the shop's refurbishment in 1909.

Caffè Fiorio

Caffé Fiorio was founded in 1780, but only became really successful in the early 1800s when it was taken over by the Fiorio brothers. This café saw a whole host of political personalities pass through it during the Risorgimento, right at the time when Italy's future was being determined in Turin. It was called 'The café of the pony tails and the Machiavellians' because it was the meeting point of may aristocrats, officials and members of the government. Among these were Giovanni Prati, Cesare Balbo and Santorre si Santarosa. Together they made the Florio into the breeding ground for public opinion in Turin. This is why it is said that the king Charles Albert used to enquire about the latest news asking, 'Qu'est-ce qu'on dit aujourd'hui au Café Fiorio?' In 1845, the Café was refurbished by a host of artists and was transformed into a meeting place for many of the middle classes among whom were Rattazzi, Lamarmora and D'Azeglio. The premises at the time were adorned with frescos by Gonin, Morgari and Gerbi and by sculptures by Bogliani which were unfortunately damaged during the last war. However, the internal rooms have retained some of the old atmosphere.

Pepino has a very central position being in the delightful piazza Carignano right in front of the Palazzo dei Guarini (one of the most significant pieces of 17th Century Italian history). It was once a shop belonging to a Neapolitan man named Domenico Pepino. Towards the end of the 19th century he introduced Turin to the wonders of home-made ice-cream. Moreover this shop boasts the invention of the "pinguino" in 1937. This was the famous "passeggiata" ice cream which was inserted onto a wooden stick. As in the past it is still a reference point for the audiences of the neighboring Teatro Carignano.
