1937 – 1938
This monumental symmetrical structure has three two-tract wings of roughly equal length. In front of the main wing is a massive protruding bay that contains the central entry spaces and courtrooms. Placed inside the courtyard is the separate building of the pre-trial detention section, of cruciform shape with three-tract arms. Part of the side wings of the palace are two residential buildings. A sense of monumentality in the spirit of the Classicist tendencies of the era is also present on the facade treatment, with the running inter-window pillars, cornices and high travertine-covered base. The building is a typical instance of the architecture of traditionally conceived public buildings.
