Since the square stands where once there were the walls, Giuseppe Frizzi had to face the problem of the difference in height between Via Po and the river; in order to dilute the abundant 7-meter difference in height, he designed cross streets, which subdivide the buildings into blocks and placed some of the fa├žades in an advanced position, so as to make the difference in height of the buildings imperceptible. Even the big size of the square played in his favor.
