    Turin--Shrouded by a Mystery and Driven by Fiat

    ... volume and the 7th in the world (ahead of such brands as Honda and Daimler.) On a historical note, WWI was a great boom to Fiat as the company turned its production from cars to military vehicles with great success. Politically a large number of union activists in Italy got their start in Turin as part of the labor movement associated with the automobile industry. Finally, to its credit, it was Fiat again that lead the way to the recovery of Turin after WWII ...

    ... a bit guilty as I speed walk, looking for the city center and speed sing through my park bench concert... Luckily there is a beautiful cathedral that works well for my video clip.

My first stop, Cavallomaggiore is a small town with lots and lots of churches... several in each block. I stop in a shop and the shopkeeper gets to chatting with me and I ask her about it. "People are quite religious here" she goes on to tell me about the religious trips she has gone ...

    ... folks of Turin committed such atrocities just a few centuries ago. And here it is, in 2013, a large Waldensian church standing proudly in the heart of Torino.

But that military jeep in front of the synagogue just a few blocks away is a reminder that the desire to scapegoat and persecute religious minorities hasn't entirely died out from some people's hearts... ...
