Is it Turin or Torino?So now I am going to go back on my answer somewhat.It would appear, this is a case where the city can be referred to by either name. The official web site is www.Torino2006.com. So it is pretty clear to me that the city is Torino and that is why I answered as I did initially.BUT...if you go to a source like Wikipedia and search for Turin, it will take you to an entry for Torino and say they are one and the same. So I guess it is a translation thing...Kind of like Wien = Vienna...the answer to your question would be a resounding YES.Acme
The Italians call it Torino, just like they call Rome, Roma. We would call it Turin, though NBC is insisting on calling it Torino. IN the end it doesn't matter.Charlie
I totally didn't know until like, yesterday that Turin and Torino were the same place. Hubby clued me in. Not that I knew much about Turin except that it was a city in Europe. I can tell you a lot about Torino though!=) MeganTorino is in ItalyTorino is also known as Turin
Same joint, Torino is just what them what live there call it.
I think the safest thing is to combine the two names and call it Turino.FuskieWho thinks whatever it is called, he would rather be there than here...
