Initial project

The first project for a square in the second extension was by Amedeo di Castellamonte at the request of Carlo Emanuele II. An octagonal square was designed, according to the model of the French "places royales". The project was soon abandoned and a place carrée was designed, easier to adapt to the Turin orthogonal mesh.

"Pensieri bellissimi di S.mariaA.R" for the buondings of Piazza Carlina, 1671-73. Simeom Collection, D 246.
