Giustizia Palace

Seat of the Supreme Court of Cassation and the Council of the Bar of Rome, the Palace of Justice is also known as "Palazzaccio", a nickname given to it by the Romans because of its size( between 1889 and 1911 by the architect Guglielmo Calderini, it is one of the monumental works created after the proclamation of Rome as the capital of the Kingdom of Italy.

During the foundation work, the muddy sands of the river returned two sarcophagi dating from around 150-170 AD, belonging to members of the same family: that of a young girl, Crepereia Tryphaena, (now at the Centrale Montemartini), and that of Crepereio Euhodo. The most exceptional discovery, however, consists of an object that belonged to the girl, an ivory doll, about 23 centimeters high, with a finely sculpted face and a rich, but above all articulated hairstyle, which demonstrate a high level of craftsmanship.The building, which has a reinforced concrete structure, is clad in travertine; on the main facade, facing the Tiber, there is a large triumphal arch which constitutes the access portal, surmounted by the sculptural group of "Justice", depicted seated between the symbolic figures of the "Law" and "Force".
