  • Turin is the capital of the aperitivo, the vermouth was born here and the Martini headquarters are just outside the city. The aperitif rite is about gathering at one of the many bars and elegant cafés and enjoy drinks served with an array of complimentary finger food, which in Turin is the so-called Merenda Sinoira. The aperitivo hour is about socializing and having fun with people. During an aperitivo time flies so fast and food is so abundant that you can actually decide to dine this way. It has become such a long and established tradition in Italy that having an aperitivo will make you feel like an Italian for one night
