Dress in cotton white and blue printed fabric. On the background we can see Monte dei Cappuccini, letteraly “the Capuchins’ hill”. On the this hill overlooking the River Po in Torino (Italy) there is the Church of Santa Maria al Monte built for the Capuchin Order.
Blue denim jacket with macramè details on the pockets and the belt.
On the background you can see the “Valentino” castle and the park in Torino (Italy). The ancient castle was bought by Duke Emmanuel Philibert of Savoy. The name Valentino, first mentioned in 1275, seems to derive from a saint called Valentine whose relics were venerated in a church which stood nearby.
Set in beige mixed linen and cotton printed fabric with “panna cotta” as a background. The Region of Piedmont includes panna cotta in its 2001 list of traditional food products of the region. One unverified story says that it was invented by a Hungarian woman in the Langhe in the early 1900s. An 1879 dictionary mentions a dish called latte inglese ‘English milk’, it could also come from the French recipe of fromage bavarois from Marie-Antoine Carême. Actually, this recipe that we can find in le pâtissier royal parisien is almost the same as the modern panna cotta.
Red waste t-shirt in cotton piquet with shell buttons.
For this style ha have chosen “giandujotto” as a background. The gianduiotto ( [dʒanduˈjɔtto]; Piedmontese: giandojòt [dʒaŋdʊˈjɔt]) is chocolate originally from Piedmont, they are shaped as ingots. It is a specialty of Turin (Italy), and takes its name from gianduja, the preparation of chocolate and hazelnut used for gianduiotti and other sweets (including Nutella and bicerin di Gianduiotto). This preparation itself is named after Gianduja, a mask in commedia dell’arte, a type of Italian theater, that represents the archetypal Piedmontese. Indeed, Gianduja’s hat inspired the shape of the gianduiotto.
White mid cotton dress and orange bag in cotton sponge fabric with glitter decorations.
I have chosen the world “cerea” of piedmont language. “cerea” mens “see you”. This greeting used typically in Torino does not have similar in Italian language. The legend tells that a cadet of the king boasted to know Greek and greeted everyone with “chaire” (light/ joy in Greek). People wanted to please the king and started to repeat the greeting. With time “chaire” became “cerea”.
