In a classroom, explaining the city of Turin to Turinese students

Wednesday 8th June, 2022 - Bruce Sterling

*This isn’t what someone from Turin would say, but I like to think that for someone, it might somehow be helpful.


*This is a “Bruno Argento” lecture here.  Bruno is really engaged with Turin, his affection for the city is long-term and unfeigned.  He pretends to be teaching Politecnico students here, but this is a literary debate with Giovanni Botero.  What *are* the causes of the magnificene of cities?
