Torino 1.2 : il circolo dei lettori

Engrossed : il Circolo dei Lettori : Torino, IT

This is one of Torino's best kept secrets: The Circle of Readers (il circolo dei lettori). It's a salon where people can go to, get this... READ! Real books. And newspapers. And magazines. There are comfy couches and chairs. The organization hosts readings, lectures, and book signings. And, if you're keen to have a coffee while you read, there's a bar. On Sundays, the Circle serves brunch.

To get into this hidden treasure, go to Via Bogino 9. If the large doors are shut, the entrance code on the key pad is 1115 + bell button. It's a nice place to get away from the hustle-and-bustle of Torino for an hour or two.
