Design The essay outlines some events, projects and realizations in Turin on the occasion of the celebration of the Unity of Italy (1861: Turin first capital of Italy; 1911 the Fifties Exhibition; 1961: «Italia ‘61», the Centenary Exhibition; and the present 2011 Sesquicentennial). These events were celebrated with projects and concrete interventions which can be considered as «Pictures at an Exhibition». In the essay, the time between the different celebrations are proposed as «promenades» in which the city, but also the buildings erected on occasion of the previous celebrations, continually change.
