Photographer's Note

The river Dora passes through the Park of Pellerina.
The Dora Riparia (Latin: Duria minor) is an Italian river, a left-hand tributary of the Po. It is 125 km (78 mi) long, with a 1,231 km² drainage basin. It originates in the Cottian Alps, close to the Col de Montgenèvre in France, where it is called the Piccola (Little) Dora. Its name becomes the Dora Riparia after the confluence with the Ripa in the Argentera Valley and the Thuras de Bousson close to Cesana.

It was at the confluence of the Dora Riparia and the Po that present-day Turin was founded in Roman times.
