Palazzo di Giustizia (Palace of Justice)
Rome, April 2013

“Inspired by late Renaissance and Baroque architecture, the building is 170 meters by 155 in size and is completely covered with Travertine limestone. Above the façade looking towards the River Tiber it is surmounted by a great bronze quadriga, set there in 1926, the work of the sculptor Ettore Ximenes from Palermo.”

I love quadrigas (sorry if that's wrong in plural). Gorgeous.
