In recent weeks, we have remembered cities such as London, Senegal, Andorra, Berlin, Dublin or Sicily and today we want to focus on one of the most traditional venues of the only international amateur padel circuit: Turin.
This italian city has accompanied the International Padel Experience by Madison since its birth, in 2012 and, on the last season, it became the seventh stop on the circuit, in which more than 100 players gathered from June 16th to 18th, to enjoy the show, the heat and the great atmosphere that reigned on the courts of the ASD Pulpadel Torino.
One of the most outstanding features of the Italian events is the coexistence of a federated competition with the non-federated and in Turin it was not different. Over three days, the competitors of the different categories showed their high level of sportsmanship on their way to the expected end, which would mean, for the winners of Men A and Women A the possibility of winning, thus achieving a place for the Final Master of Champions.
The desired first place went to the Severini-Cremona (in the men's category) and Pollacci-Sussarello (in the women's category), putting the icing on the cake in a great tournament in which both couples showed a very high level of play.
The players also enjoyed during the weekend the incredible experience of combining their favorite sport with the best international tourism, knowing one of the most famous cities in Italy.
The Egyptian Museum of Turin is the second most important museum with collections of Egyptian antiquities after the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. It is a baroque building that is part of the Palazzo dell'Accademia delle Scienze.
Piazza Castello is considered the heart of Turin and is located in the historic center of the city. In this famous square are some of the most important buildings in the city, such as the Madama Palace, the Royal Palace, the Turin Cathedral or the Teatro Regio. Along with these famous buildings, there are three outstanding sculptures around the Madama Palace: the first dedicated to the Ensign of the Sardo Army, the monument to the Knight of Italy and the sculpture dedicated to Manuel Filiberto de Saboya-Aosta.
Film Museum This museum is dedicated to the history of Italian and international cinema. It was inaugurated in the year 2000 and is arranged in a didactic way, for the enjoyment of the whole family. It is located in the historic center of Turin, in the Mole Antonelliana.
La Mole Antonelliana is the main architectural symbol of Turin, located in the historic center of the city. Originally it was built to be a Jewish synagogue, however, because of disagreements between the architect and the Jewish community, it did not end up being developed as such. Currently, it is the headquarters of the Film Museum. The image of this building appears on the coins of two Italian cents.
After the conclusion of the competition the International Padel Experience by Madison packed up to head for Zurich.
