3 nights starting from
The iconic Fiat Factory with rooftop test track
The Art Nouveau buildings of Turin
The Art Nouveau buildings of Milan
Two talks from Art Nouveau expert, Prof Anne Anderson
The Art Nouveau movement, known as Liberty in Italy, was embraced by several Torinese architects and this elegant city became the Liberty capital of Italy. Nearby Milan embraced the style in nearly equal measure and we explore its legacy in both cities on this superb new tour in the company of renowned Art Nouveau expert, Prof Anne Anderson. The brief flourishing came in the first decade of the 20th century with a host of lovely buildings by architects Pietro Fenoglio, Giovanni Gribodo and others, including the renowned La Fleuri apartment block.
