  Does your government have a house like this?
by iandsmith

Each building has standout features in the Piazza Unita dell Italia. From grand neo-classical facades to the art nouveau of others the word "grand" will regularly enter your mind. There are no second places in this piazza, they are all as grand as one another, they're just different to each other.
The Palazzo del Governo (Government House) constantly caught my eye it the daytime as the sun glistened on the gilded frescoes adorning the wall. They dazzled as the rays cascaded down and then splashed in all directions, tormenting one's gaze.
