Palazzo di Giustizia, Rome

Palazzo di Giustizia – The Palace of Justice – is popularly called the Palazzaccio by the Italians and is the seat of the Supreme Court of Cassation and the Judicial Public Library. Built between 1888 and 1910, the Palazzo is considered to be one of the grandest of the new buildings of Rome. Soon after completion of the building there were concerns over the stability of the foundations and in 1970 there was a restoration project to strengthen the site. The building was officially opened on 11 January 1911 in the presence of the King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel III. The 170 meter facade of the Palazzo sits along the River Tiber and faces the Ponte Umberto I. It is topped by a great bronze Quadriga, placed there in 1926 and is the work of sculptor Ettore Ximenes from Palermo. Quadrigas are symbols of Triumph.
