Galleria Sciarra was built between 1885 and 1888 as part of surge of development following Rome's designation as capital of a united Italy in 1870.
Prince Maffeo Sciarra, owner of the prime property near the Trevi Fountain, commissioned the architect Giulio De Angelis to design the glass-domed structure as a fashionable shopping centre.The building no longer functions in its original role but Giuseppe Cellini's magnificent Art Nouveau frescoes surrounding the interior courtyard can still be enjoyed.Galleria Sciarra is open as a public pedestrian thoroughfare, during office hours, with entrances on Via Marco Minghetti and Piazza dell'Oratorio.
