I admired and admired this huge building and also wondered what it was used for.

It was the home of the Genoa Stock Exchange, built between 1907 and 1912, and was the oldest in Italy. I say "was," as in 1998 it closed its doors. To me, this was one of the most beautiful buildings in Genoa, different, because of the curved facade facing Via XX Settembre and Via Dante, as well as the central Piazza De Ferrari. It took up the whole width between the streets. It's very decorative, and has many, many faces on the exterior.
It is now the premises of an "exclusive" Club.
