It was too much for Pippo, the sky blue hippo, to resist and so to celebrate, after many long years, he decided to take a fun spin around the highways and byways and squares in Turin, from Via Luisa del Carretto to Piazza Vittorio, from Piazza Castello to the Valentino Park. When interviewed he gave the following statement: "Pippo, Pippo, Pippo po'... I'm back on my toes, you bet! You'd better believe it! I'm a youngster I was... born in 1966 thanks to that genius Armando Testa! And even if my legs are a bit stiff I am feeling fitter than ever! Now I've got to get going.... there's a beautiful sunny day waiting for me!".
