The Galleria Sciarra of Rome!

The Gallery Sciarra is a covered passageway in Rome, in the Trevi district.  The Galleria Sciarra is located in via Minghetti, a side street of via del Corso, and is located in the center of the building complex which starts from Banco di Roma and ends with the Quirino theater on via delle Vergini.  The building was built between 1885 and 1888, originally as a courtyard at the end of the Palazzo Sciarra Colonna di Carbognano, as part of the restructuring and modernization of services in the center of Rome, linked to the construction of the new capital city.

The central part is filled with architectural elements and painted by Giuseppe Cellini, in the Art Nouveau style, developing the iconographic theme of the “Glorification of Woman”, illustrating the models of female virtue (Modesty, Sobriety, Strength, Humility, Prudence, Patience, Kindness, Wife, Faithfulness, Friendliness, Mercy). There are also scenes of the daily life of the bourgeoisie. The vault is made of iron and glass.  During the restoration carried out in the late 1970s, the building was completely gutted from the inside, and rebuilt in reinforced concrete. However, the paintings and decorations, as well as the iron structures, have been saved.
