The work is among the most significant of the architect Giulio Magni, nephew of Valadier. The project, begun in 1912 and inaugurated on 26 October 1928, draws on the Roman Liberty repertoire with its own "barocchetto" similarities. The building is an impressive complex that covers 31,000 square meters, of which 11,500 are covered. The entrance propylaeum is enriched by the anchors of two Austrian battleships of the First World War: "Viribus Unitis" and "Tegetthoff". In the planning and realization of the environments, the desire to insert metaphorical elements linked to the sea predominates, as if the entire building were to be the decorated stage of the life of the Navy.
