1473/77 for Cardinal Stefano Nardini appointed governor of Rome by Pope Paul II Barbo (1464/71)
It is also known as Palazzo Nardini
Cardinal Nardini donated it in 1475 to the Pio Ospedale del Salvatore in Laterano (Devout Hospital of the Saviour at the Lateran) to use it as headquarters of the Academy of Arts and Humanities
In 1624 the Hospital of the Savior gave the palace to the Apostolic Chamber for Urban VIII Barberini (1623/44) had decided to use it as the seat of the Governor of Rome
In 1755 Benedict XIV Lambertini (1740/58) moved all the offices in the new Government Palace, i.e. Palazzo Madama, and Palazzo Nardini became the Palazzo del Governo Vecchio (Palace of the Old Government), whose name was later transferred also to the street
From 1870 it was the seat of the Pretura Civile (District Civil Court)
Since 1964 it belongs to the city of Rome and it is abandoned and awaiting resettlement
In 1977 the film Doppio Delitto (Double Murder) was shot here, with Marcello Mastroianni, Peter Ustinov and Ursula Andress from the book Doppia morte al Governo Vecchio (Double Death at the Old Government)
