Building of the Municipal Delegation

Building of the Municipal Delegation
Architecture Culture

The building is in the Civic Center, the area that the designers of the City Plan of the 1916, wanted to look like a Roman Forum.

It was built between 1924 and 1926 and is composed of three sectors organized around a quadrangular courtyard with a well.
In this work the author, Vincenzo Fasolo, combines medieval elements with details of the sixteenth-century Venetian tradition.

On the external and internal facades you can see nice encaustic decorations by Bruno Calzolari.

Unfortunately in 1943, the destruction of the Roma-Ostia railway terminus, which was designed as a twin to the Roma-Piramide station by Marcello Piacentini, deprived the Delegation building of its surroundings: the unity of the square that can be seen in the photos taken before the Second World War has therefore been lost.
