    “An architect from Modena named Guarino Guarini (1624–1683) arrived at Turin in 1666, a Theatine abbot and mathematician. The impact of his Baroque style was breathtaking, so original yet demonstrating various influences – from Borromini to Gothic and Moorish art. We can today admire the architectural geometry of Palazzo Carignano, the dizzying heights of the domes of San Lorenzo and the Holy Shroud Chapel…San Lorenzo, having no facade, merges with the other buildings of Piazza Castello. The church, consecrated in 1680, is another masterpiece of Guarino Guarini. Emanuele Filiberto commissioned it after the wow he made on the eve of the battle of San Quintino, fought on August 10th 1557. It is based on an octagonal plan with convex sides and an intersected arched dome. Its architecture, along wit its marble, stuccoes, large altarpieces and sculptures form a very impressive ensemble.”
