One of Turin central squares, its symbol is the obelisk
Eighteenth-century square, which qualifies the expansion of the medieval city by placing itself on the site of the ancient Porta Segusina. The buildings that border the perfect square are important architects of the time for noble residences, while the central obelisk was placed in the mid-800 to mark the political event of the Siccardi law, which abolished the ecclesiastical forum, consolidating the principles of secularity of the State of the Cavour period.
