Palazzo della Stamperia (Printing House) was erected in the end of the 16th century by G.Del Duca for cardinal Luigi Cornaro. In 1642 it passed to Olimpia Maidalchini Pamphili (sister-in-law of Pope Innocent X), who enlarged it. It is therefore also called Palazzo Cornaro Pamphilj. In 1777 the palace was acquired by Pius VI to place here the Roman Printing-shop, suppressed in 1871. Its inheritor is The State Hectographic Institute organized in 1928 with the seat in an enormous palace at Piazza Verdi. It realizes all the materials of administrative character for the needs of State, as well as forms of documents and post stamps. Recently the State Mint was annexed to it.
Palazzo della Stamperia was adapted for the new arrangement of the zone with the new roads and risen for the needs of public offices, that substituted the papal printing house (stamperia). On the right-hand side of the present Palazzo della Stamperia (Via della Stamperia) is Palazzo Poli, which houses the Calcografia dello Stato in the street of the same name that runs along the right-hand side of the Trevi fountain, just opposite the old Palazzo Carpegna. A few paces beyond is the old building in which the Accademia di San Luca, with a gallery of Old Masters, is located. As you near the end of Via della Stamperia, you can probably hear the sound of Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain), a Baroque extravaganza of sculpture and cascading waters.
