1936/37 Cesare Valle (1902/2000) and Ignazio Guidi (1904/78)
It is the area of the ancient PORTO TIBERINO (Tiberine Port) the first port of Rome
In order to build it, the Church of St. Galla was destroyed, as well as other buildings
“The project is characterized by a clear floor plan, in which the realization of the great courtyards, the highlighting of the substantial archaeological findings, the use of the curtain brick and travertine moldings and the large openings in iron glass summarize the choices that Guidi adopted for the setting of the buildings in an area unique in the world. The result is a great respect for the preexisting archaeological findings, without renouncing the use of elements of modernity that do not clash with the prestigious surroundings” (Filippo Spaini - Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani Treccani)
Inside the palace there is the large mural “Roman Carnival” 1937/39 by Orfeo Tamburi (1910/94)
