Palazzo di Cittą

Once known as Piazza delle Erbe for the herbs that were sold here, it's now the square of Turin's City Hall.
Between 1659 and 1665 the original Palazzo Municipale (City Hall) was demolished and rebuilt by Francesco Lanfranchi, later to be enlarged by Benedetto Alfieri in the eighteenth century.
Since 1858 the statues of Carlo Alberto and Vittorio Emanuele II have graced the faēade. In the centre of the square stands a monument to the Conte Verde, the work of the sculptor Pelagio Pelagi.
Commmissioned by King Carl Alberto, it represents Amedeus VI of Savoy, known as the Green Count.
