Unicredit Bank, Milano, Italy

Cesare Scoccimarro
Date Built
1938 and 1942
Piazza Tommaso Edison
Today this building in Piazza Tommaso Edison belongs to the Unicredit Bank.  It was built originally as the Milan Headquarters of the Bank of Rome, which is probably revealed by the sculpture of Romulus and Remus on the curved facade.  Behind the curved facade is the former council chamber decorated by a beautiful fresco entitled "Allegory of the Shops in different historical periods" created by Achille Funi.
