1887 Giulio De Angelis (1850/1906) brilliant architect who used iron in an innovative way
It was the headquarters of the magazine Cronaca Bizantina (Byzantine Chronicle) to which the greatest Italian writers of the end of the nineteenth century collaborated: Giosuè Carducci, Luigi Capuana, Edmondo De Amicis, Giovanni Verga, Cesare Pascarella, Giovanni Pascoli and others. It was very critical against the Roman ruling class
The palace takes its name from Costanzo Chauvet journalist who until 1918 headed the newspaper Il Popolo Romano (The Roman People)
The street is called Due Macelli (Two Slaughterhouses) because until 1825 there were two shops here that used to slaughter and sell meat
