Mole Antonelliana - Il Volo Dei Numeri473 viewsThe Mole (or "heap") Antonelliana is the symbol of Torino. The red neon numbers up the side, by Mario Merz, are the Fibonacci numbers.

Throwing the Dog Into The Air183 viewsThe skateboard dude stunned us all -- including Tom Green, holding the microphone -- by tossing his little dog into the air. Fortunately, he caught the dog.

Dining Room With A Map of Torino165 viewsThis dining room at the Torino Mediacentre had a map of the city on the floor. There are also see-through plastic tables and chairs, but they're difficult to spot.

Via Po -- Heading to the Olympic Store178 viewsMore "Luci d'Artista" --- this time it's "Palomar" by Giulio Paolini. "Palomar consists of many circles of light that meet and overlap until they assume the aspect of planets and satellites."

Man, Dog, Skateboard - Sestiere168 viewsTom Green, the comedian, was filming in Sestiere. For some reason, there was a dude with a skateboard and a red dog, and they came riding down what passes for the main street.

Marjorie Getting Ready for the Olympics177 viewsAt our hotel in Saluzzo, The Griselda. The staff at the hotel were tremendously friendly, but the bed and pillows were made of concrete, and we were right next to the lift and heard every creak and clatter.

A Caribineri (Policeman) in Cesana Pariol298 viewsThe cashier at a restaurant near our hotel observed, "We thought we'd be invaded by tourists. Instead, we were invaded by the police." Most caribineri were glum and unfriendly. This gentleman, however, was different. He even helped me to my seat, and carried my camera.

Two "Doormen" in Torino175 viewsThese two ladies were, I suppose, "doormen" at a hotel in Torino. I thought their hats were funny (as did they) so they let me take their photograph --- until the President of the Republic of Italy arrived.

Xenon for Torino - Piazza Castello - Jenny Holzer1521 viewsTorino has a programme called "Luci d'Artista." Jenny Holzer uses powerful Xenon lights to project "her words with the intention of contrasting ignorance and violence with sweetness and moral courage." The English didn't make much sense to Marjorie and me, but the castle was impressive.

Me -- At Lunch in Bra, Italy229 viewsWe went to lunch in Bra, Italy (I liked the name). While we waited for our food, Marjorie and I played around with my ultra-wide angle lens. I'm not sure this photograph of me is all that flattering: I don't think I will be using it when it's time to renew my passport!
