The Italian Job returns to Torino!

In 1969 British film The Italian Job, staring Michael Cain, was shot right here in Torino. Mini Coopers were filmed in car chases speeding threw Via Roma, Piazza San Carlo, the FIAT factory, and even in my Piazza Castello. Today some Mini enthusiasts drove around the city center perhaps as a 40 year tribute.
Here is a clip from the original film showing off the city, my hood.
