In the building now occupied by the barracks of the Legione Lazio dei Carabinieri, was constructed in 1744-1758 by L.Vanvitelli as a seat of the first tobacco factory in Rome. When the pope's monopoly on tobacco was suspended, Pius VI established here in 1785 the "Conservatorio Pio" for the poor girls and connected it with the other Conservatorio dell"Assunta", founded by Benedict XIV 30 years earlier. In the new big conservatorio was founded in 1792 the wool manufacture, so that the institution could use it as a financial and educational resource for the inmates.
