Photographer's Note

The Basilica of Superga, also known as the Basilica of Superga real [1], located on the hill east of Turin. It was built by King Vittorio Amedeo II as a thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary, after defeating the French were besieging Turin in 1706 [2]. The project is of Messina, Filippo Juvarra and dates back to 1715. At the chapel, located at the top of the hill, one can come across the street or using the tramway Sassi-Superga.

A few moments after this shot surprised us a downpour and the Basilica was filled with people seeking shelter.
Forgive the error in having cut too the cross on the dome but I wanted to cover as much as possible the parked cars with flowers.
