Honestly one of the best postmodern designs I've seen, in my opinion nicer than some more famous ones.

Typical postmodernist architecture that you saw most commonly in the 80s-early 2000s has almost cardboard-y cutout shapes resembling vaguely traditional designs. Less typical is the eclectic, deconstructivist, heavily abstract or convincingly neoclassical part of postmodernism.

Contemporary modernist architecture (distinct from mid-century modernism) is considerably more refined and less whacky than the postmodern styles. It uses space and light, and clean forms unlike the detailed, colourful or bizarre postmodernism.
The term "post-modernism" is like that of music, less defined by iconic acts and replicated accordingly by those who can't have the access to being replicated themselves. In that sense, post-modernism is only breaking free from the concept of ideals and such. With architecture, it emerges in the 1960s. With music, it is more firmly from the 1960s.

That being said, calling a specific building post-modernist isn't particularly helpful in what it is doing in much the same way that calling the music of Dead Kennedys post-modernist.

That's more like philosophical postmodernism, in architecture it's an actual style.

As a personal note, the Palazzo di Giustizia was designed by Leonardo Ricci in the 80s, achieved as late as in the 00s due to the death of the architect (in 1994) and operating since 2012.

It is located in the contemporary neighborhood of Novoli.

That makes sense, I thought it was actually from the 80s until I saw it was from 2012.
