Galleria San Federico

The Galleria San Federico, is a typical example of "free-standing" eclectic building  represented in major Italian and European cities. Its setting, with the "T" plan, provides three access roads from the surrounding Via Bertola, Via Roma and Via Santa Teresa. 

It is spread over six floors, four of which are above ground, plus its mezzanine and attic. The cover features a elliptical vault ceilings surmounted by domes at the three entrances and a large central dome which dominates the entrance staircase of the Lux Cinema.

These two photo were taken with cell phone, my first time.

At street level are numerous home business premises, while the mezzanine and upper floors representative offices and professional offices. A ramp mail Via Bertola leads to the two underground floors used as a garage and storage area.
