Palace of Justice - Buenos Aires, Argentina






For those of us who love Architecture, the easiest thing to remember about the movie The Secret in her Eyes is not that it did won the Oscar, but instead that several scenes were shot in the galleries of the Palace of Justice. This palace, usually known as “Tribunales”, is so important that the surrounding neighborhood takes its name. It also creates the life of the atmosphere around, being a chaotic place from monday to friday, and with almost no movement the saturdays and sundays. Inside this palace was the core of the Justice of the country for more than a century and it still is the main building of the Judicial system and the last decisions of the Law in Argentina, probably being the most famous room the courtroom of the Supreme Court, where most of the pictures shown in the papers are taken. The architect who built this epic beauty was Norbert Maillart, who also introduced Buenos Aires into the world stage with another two massive buildings: the Colegio Nacional and the Palace of the Post Office.

Rome, Italy

Rome's Justice Palace is the seat of the Supreme Court of Cassation and the Judicial Public Library. Designed by Guglielmo Calderini, it was erected in 1888-1911, and it is considered one of the grandest of the new buildings which followed the proclamation of Rome as the capital city of the Kingdom of Italy. Inspired by late Renaissance and Baroque architecture, the building is completely covered with Travertine limestone. Romans call the building "Palazzaccio" (bad palace) because of its huge dimensions and exaggerated decorations that weight down the architectonic lines.

Milan, Italy

The Palace was built in 1929-1947, and it was designed by one of the main proponents of Italian Fascist architecture: Marcello Piacentini. It was built on a 30,000 sqm area and it is divided into three sections: the Appeal Court, the Law Court and the Magistrates Court. On the south west side there is a "tower" (61 meters).
