Piazza San Carlo’s faces in Turin
Piazza San Carlo is one of the most important squares of the historic center of Turin.
The piazza is 168 meters long and 76 wide is inserted into the road axis of Via Roma, which connects Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Felice.
It is the usual place for the historical and social events, rallies, demonstrations, presentations, strikes, concerts.
Personally is one of my favorites, especially since the square has become completely forbidden to car and only pedestrian allowed.
You may have noticed other photos of Piazza San Carlo around the website, invariably I stop there and notice something…
Few months ago I noticed that every window of the two main buildings in Piazza San Carlo overlooking the square, itself, have different faces to decorate them, both human and monstrous and Gargoyles.
I started taking some pictures and I noticed that, unlike other palaces such as Palazzo Lascaris where there is actually a repetition, in Piazza San Carlo all these faces are different one from another.
Soon I will dedicate a photo session to the equestrian monument located at the center of the square, but today the protagonists are the faces…
