One late evening on arriving at the Torino train station, we were met by five-year-old twin boys each holding their hand made poster. Along with their  parents, they treated us not only royally but also stole our hearts for 3 amazing days! As we roamed around the Italian North-West extremities (Castellemonte region) with them (the Swiss Alps always in view), we did delight in their lithos. But even more than that, we felt we had come upon very special humans.
