The art of drinking

One of the most enticing museum exhibitions I’ve ever seen was in the Palazzo Madama in Turin last summer.  Here’s the explanatory label, thoughtfully provided in English as well as Italian, French, German, Arabic, Chinese and Japanese.  Those Italians know how to appeal to a broad range of visitors!

I’m only sorry it took me 10 months to find my photos!  Cheers, tutti!
