A triangle of streets

In the pre-Napoleonic age there was no square at this point, but rather an irregular space between the stands of the citadel to the west and the blocks of the seventeenth-century New City to the east. This space became a trading place for wood and straw.

Extension of the city of Turin. The city walls and the citadel disappeared, and consequenttly Piazza Solferino was formed.
