Palazzo Corrodi, today the headquarters of the Cassa Geometri, was born from the idea of the landscape painter Hermann Corrodi, to create a building entirely used as an artist's studio. Built between 1903 and 1906, on the Umbertine-style project of engineer Gualtiero Aureli, the building comes to life with leading personalities from the Italian artistic and cultural history of the first half of the 20th century. He was chosen as an atelier by artists such as Onorato Carlandi, Enrico Coleman, Giulio Aristide Sartorio, Paolo Michetti and the sculptor Christian Hendrik Andersen. The building goes down in history, having been the residence where the poet Trilussa lived and died. Its interiors hosted the auditorium, from which the first radio announcement of the Italian Radiofonica Union was broadcast, the offices of the Metro Goldwin Mayer film company, and the dubbing and soundtrack company of Fono Roma films. Renovated by Paolo Portoghesi at the end of the 80s, with a refined language that works between historical heritage and innovation.
