Piazza Carignano

Piazza Carignano is one of the historical squares of the Sabauda city, pedestrianized. It is surrounded by buildings with Baroque architecture, among which the imposing Palazzo Carignano stands out, one of the major symbols of the Italian Risorgimento. Opposite the latter are the Carignano Theater and some important and historic shops in Turin, such as the famous "Ristorante del Cambio" and the historic "Gelateria Pepino".

A view of the piazza from the Egytian Museum

The small size (about 88x33 meters), the monumentality of the curvilinear facade of Palazzo Carignano, of which at the back is the other historical Piazza Carlo Alberto, and the nearby presence of prestigious institutions, such as the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, make the square one of the  richest corner of artistic, historical and monumental suggestions of the historical center of the Piedmontese capital.

 At the center of the square stands a statue dedicated to Vincenzo Gioberti.
