Palazzo della Missione, Rome

Palazzo della Missione was erected in 1642 by initiative of one religious French lady with the goal to give it to the Congregation founded in Paris by St Vincent of Paoli, which was also called Congregation of Lazzarists or "Signori della Missione". There was also a church Chiesa della Trinita della Missione annexed to the palace, but destroyed in 1907.

During the excavations in the courtyard of the palace in 1703 a red granite column was extracted. It was dedicated to Antoninus Pius and stood in the center of Ustrinum, which was a site of cremation of emperor and empress Antoninus and Faustina.

The column was damaged and split during the transportation to Piazza di Montecitorio, and because of its state, it was not possible to erect the monument. Nevertheless its pieces were later used for restoration of the Obelisk of Augustus, which was placed in Piazza di Montecitorio instead.

At present Palazzo della Missione is a seat of parliamentary groups of the Chamber of Deputies. A little archway built in 1904 connects it with the Palazzo di Montecitorio.
