The work was financed thanks to a bequest made by Etienne Guffier − a functionary at the French Embassy in Rome. This spectacular architectural solution for the steep slope leading down the Church of Trinità dei Monti to the square, piazza di Spagna, was constructed by Francesco de Sanctis between 1723 and 1726.
The structure is made up of flights of steps and balconies. These various ramps, with their sinuous forms, provide a theatrical effect.
