Palazzo Braschi is a large Neoclassical palace in Piazza Navona, built between 1798 and 1804. The Braschi family sold the palace to the Italian State, and was used as the seat of the Ministry of Interior. During the Fascist period it was the seat of fascist institutions and Republican Fascist Party. After the war it was occupied by refugee families and many interior frescoes and features were damaged. Starting with 1952 it became the seat of the Museo di Roma.
