Gebaute Entfestigung

gebaute-entfestigungBy Cornelia Jöchner

How does a city become an open city after a long history of being walled? Turin is notable in this regard for two important architectural ensembles: the Superga Basilica and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele.

The architectural features at the edges of Turin give evidence to these changes in a very specific way, for they contributed to a new political order in the city and country.
