The Carle Morello’s project is chosen for the new façade of the palace. The presence of solids and voids that Valperga had already planned for the lateral pavillions is extended for the whole façade: windows are joined by the flat bands and alternated by framesets, while the cornice cut in half the façade. The colums and the decoration are removed only on the second floor and windows surmounted by arches and glabes alternating. It is claimed the rigour and the severity more appropriated to the image of King Carlo Emanuele II.
