The City Palace in Theatrum Sabaudiae

In the representation of the Palace of the City included in the Theatrum Sabaudiae, the building seems more imposing than the design planned by Lanfranchi and it already seems to anticipate the Alferiene project. The ports continue on the sides while the seven windows of the façade as they were built become thirteen as in the final project that can still be seen today. An omen eight years earlier before its realization.
