Turin from the baloon

The square seems already organized with the four lobes of the pavilions, aligned on the front of Juvarra's fork (the “small square” in the north and south part) along Milano street, leaving a big central space subsequently occupied by the contemporary market's facilities.

The litography perfectly shows the development of the square, the avenues, the inclusion in the frame of the regular blocks of the city center, the proximity to the monumental buildings: the Royal Palace, the Duomo, Palazzo Madama, the town hall.
