The first baroque design of a district outside the city walls square; from the southern limit up to the Porta Nuova.
The southern extension of Turin, designed by the ducal architect Carlo di Castellamonte in the 1920s, in continuity with his predecessor Ascanio Vitozzi, represents the first Baroque structure conceived as a unitary urban design. Piazza Castello, the cut of the Via Nuova, the Piazza Reale, the district of Porta Nuova and the Porta Nuova constitute a single area designed as a whole, although at different times. The following enlargements and the redevelopment of the city were carried out on the same footprint for almost three centuries.
