The largest public space in the ancient city, located at the edge of the medieval walls and intersection of the routes leading to the Castello hill
An open space among walls and convents formed back in the 12th century on top of the ancient city center. It still is one of the most identifying places in the historic center, a sort of theatrical proscenium enclosed by the convent of S. Agostino, the Castle (today the Architecture faculty), and the baroque façade of S. Salvatore, accessible coming up from S. Donato or going down the Carignano bridge and Ravecca, the only route parallel to the walls up to Porta Soprana.
