PALAZZO DI GIUSTIZIA is the Italian Supreme Court and is one amazing building. Construction finished on this building in 1910 and it's most definitely very eye catching. We were on our way to Piazza Cavour walking along the riverbank and this amazing structure really caught my attention and standing on the magnificent Ponte Umberto I I took some nice photos... More

The Palace of Justice is an impressive building sitting on the banks of the Tiber River. It serves as the seat for the Supreme Court (referred to as the last stop in the Italian court system). It also houses the Italian central library of law. This is not a place you want to have to come to, and it is... More

The whole of Trajan's Forum (pillars stand today) functioned as the "Palace of Justice". The experts say (and it is written) that "The Forum of Trajan was in fact a large palace of justice where law related matters .." were decided. He was one of the 5 good Emperors.

It has beautiful architecture. It can be seen from the Tiber river and from Pont Umbero 1. The appearance of the palace is truly majestic!

Here it is where justice, or 'justice' (depends on the days), is served. Architecturally it may be a mix of way too many styles yet it still is pretty impressive. It is possible to visit the inside of the building for free, you just need to get a visitor pass at the entrance. Also, if you come after 10 and... More

The seat of the Supreme Court and the Judicial Public Library is an imposing building (170 meters long and 155 meters wide), which locals often call the Palazzaccio (the Bad Palace). It was designed at the end of the 19th century by Guglielmo Calderini, a Perugian architect.
