Overview

Bounded by the Via Trionfale, Via Tommaso Campanella, Via Bernardino Telesio and Via Giordano Bruno, the large police garage is ochre in color. It was designed by Vinaccia in the 1930s when the rest of the area was also built. It is used as accommodation for the police as well as for parking their vehicles. The main entrance is on the corner of Via Trionfale and Via Campanella below an overhang supported by grooved half-columns over which a large tower stands. The tower is decorated with columns, bas-reliefs and three large statues inspired by classical models in niches. The statues appear to represent Apollo di Belvedere and Ercole Farnese. Two small, non-working fountains stand between the corner cylinder and the two façades in a state of neglect. The façades of the building are classically inspired as seen by the statues, sculptures, bas-reliefs and drums.
