Gattinara, Italy 1682

Categorized in

Following its destruction by the French in 1526, this city in northern Italy was entirely replanned. It was one of the earliest Renaissance urban designs to incorporate a grid-iron street system, a central square with streets entering the mid-points of its sides, and arcades around the square and along its access streets. The engraved plan-view of this unusual town was published in Joan Blaeu’s Theatrum Saubaudiae.
