Located one block away from Piazza Navona, this late 15th Century palace was once home to the Medici family. Today the Italian Senate occupies it. A very ornate and unassuming building that is a seat of power.

We unintentionally walked by the building, going from Piazza Navona to the Pantheon; we took some pictures and admired the building, without knowing what is building is. The building is the seat of the Senate of the Italian Republic (Senato della Repubblica).

This old fairly simple building houses the Italian Senate. The day we went there was tons of security I assume more than normal.

This building houses the Italian senate. The architecture is stunning. Not sure if you can go inside however the building is plenty guarded. A really nice building for photography between the pantheon and the fountain.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
