‘D Caroli Templo’ on Piazza San Carlo. with a Corinthian entablature, pedestal and proportion but the body is not fluted.

I really appreciate the proportion of Greek columns, the delicate difference of diameter at different height is really impressive. I am happy they  still remained or simulated today so widely at least in Turin, and since we don’t invent more beautiful columns I believe the Greek style are still worthy to be used or developed.
