Hall of Justice

How appropriate that our tour of Rome starts out at the back of the "Palazzo di Giustizia " (Hall of Justice) at Piazza Cavour.

 

I found this on the internet about the Palazzo: "Known best as the "Palazzaccio" or "Big Bad Palace" due to its harsh lines and excessive decoration, today it is the location of the Supreme Court of Appeals. It was built by Guglielmo Calderini between 1888 and 1910 in giant blocks of travertine stone, which caused a sink hole. "
