The new North-South axis

The road, located on the new ducal palace in Piazza Castello and facing South, in the direction of the extra-urban residence of Mirafiori, cuts the existing medieval fabric and proposes new fa├žades with repeated architectural elements, designed in function of a larger urban staircase. The district, following the demolition of the ancient walls, opened up in Piazza Reale (now San Carlo) and continued with two pairs of new blocks up to Porta Vittoria, then Porta Nuova.

Two churches in Piazza San Carlo and, on the background, Porta Vittoria designed as well by Carlo di Castellamonte.
