This massive building borders the pretty Piazza Cavour on one side, and faces the Tiber on the other. It was built at the turn of the 19th Century, and is considered one of the grandest of the "new" buildings constructed when Rome became the capital city of the united Kingdom of Italy. Despite its grandeur, some people consider it unattractive and refer to it as Il Palazzaccio, "the ugly palace." On the side facing the river, there are statues of great Italian jurists. At the top is a gigantic bronze statue of a winged "Justice" in a chariot drawn by four horses. It is particularly notable at night when it is brightly lit up.
