A necessary backdrop

The Palazzo Richelmy is designed to neatly define the front of the Duomo square, otherwise jagged by the edge of a disordered housing that has been run along the walls since Roman times. Even the new building that replaces the Baroque one takes on the same task, albeit with highly discussed results.

The picture, from the end of the 1930s, shows the moment in which the Richelmy palace was demolished. The square is doubled, confined by the forehead of the block now replaced by the NH hotel.
