  • The origin of the term "Montecitorio" is uncertain, various hypotheses have been made to explain it. According to one of these debris and materials produced by the construction of a large part of ancient Rome were heaped up in a modest rise in and around the Campus Martius; Therefore this site was called "Mons Acceptorius" from which over time to a phonetic simplification process, would have derived the current name. The place remained virtually deserted throughout the middle ages. Over 1600, designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini modified then by Carlo Fontana, was built in this area a large building with sober lines and elegant collection, owned by the family Ludovisi. The façade, remained intact until now, it has a pentagonal pattern to better adapt to the shape of the square where it stands. The middle part houses the entrances, surrounded by four columns supporting a harmonious balustrade. It all culminates in a small but graceful steeple clock plate. For almost two centuries the palace housed the Papal Curia, i.e. the body that justice was administered in the Rome of the Popes. Immediately after the capture of Rome the Palazzo di Monte Citorio was requisitioned by the State of Savoy and became the seat of the Chamber of Deputies, first of the Kingdom of Italy and then of the Republic. As a result, preserving only the main façade were made extensive modifications to the building, both internal and external. Rear elevation was monumental on Parliament Square, who gave the building a lavish and massive structure. Inside the great Hall was built by shareholders in bleachers, blanket and together lit by the so-called "Curtain" (the beautiful art nouveau glass and steel dome). Behind the bench of the President, on the back wall, he installed a large bronze bas relief dedicated to the Savoy dynasty. Saw the light of the "Hall of lost footsteps", better known as "transatlantic", that is, the majestic Hall of the main access to the Chamber where the decoration it does indeed resemble a large cruise ship. Currently the Bell on the façade TOCSIN sounds whenever it is elected the President of the Republic. The piazza in front of Palazzo Monte Citorio took on its current appearance at the end by 1700 on the architect Giovanni Antinori. These restored and erected in the middle of the square, the great Egyptian obelisk of the seventh century BC, coming from the city of Heliopolis, found in ruins nearby. The monolith (more than 20 meters) had been brought to Rome by Emperor Augustus who had used as the Gnomon in the large Sundial of Campus Martius. Traces of this monumental Sundial, well described by Pliny the elder, were found in the basements of some buildings in the Campo Marzio. Recent attempts to restore in any way the operation of the Sundial, witnessed by the long strip of metal with dates visible on the floor of the square, not have had great success. A narrow alley separates Palazzo Monte Citorio by Palazzo Chigi (the seat of the Government of the Republic) which lies immediately to its right. Palazzo Monte Citorio is normally open to visitors on the first Sunday of each month. Tickets, entirely free, retire the same day in the tourist kiosk Via Uffici del Vicario, almost opposite the bar Giolitti (on this occasion you can also taste the famous and renowned ice cream). Group visits, and in time, always take place with the assistance of an employee of the Chamber of Deputies. Be on time because the tickets are valid only for the time they indicated.

  • This beautiful ancient Palace, seat of the Chamber of Deputies was created by Bernini author of Baroque style elegant and pleasant. Known at the institutional level and often mentioned her role as government building is well worth a visit, from the outside but perhaps sometimes inside too.
