Policlinico (Polyclinic) Umberto I Hospital, Rome

The decision to built a Polyclinic was supported mostly by Guido Baccelli, to face the needs of the new Italian state in development of scientific education and research. But while the other faculties were arranged in the zone of Via Panisperna, the faculty of medicine could not find the place for its permanent seat. To resolve this problem was found a compromise between the educational and hospital needs; so the necessary financial funds were found and the teaching hospital was built in the period of 1888-1902. The project belonged to Guido Podesti and was considered to be a model in that epoch.

Policlinico (Polyclinic) Umberto I - A Architectural Hospital Insitute, Rome
The policlinic Umberto I of Rome is a great hospital insitute in the historic centre of Rome. It was born with the idea to creat a centre to regroup all major clinics. The institute is specialised in general surgery and organ transplantations. It also includes wards of Angiology, aesthetical medicine, urology, orthopedics, work medicine, ozonotherapy, and it includes a ward of chemcal medicine. It is located in the very centre of Rome, near the underground stop Policlinico on the line B. The largest public hospital in Italy. It is served by the Policlinico Metro station.

The Rome Policlinico Umberto I is an example of the tendency, already in place at the end of the XIX century, to reunite in a single architectural compound hospital-clinics, labortories, teaching rooms, and libraries, so as to satisfy the needs of University research and education. Guido Baccelli was the promoter of the project: his political and scientific commitment are proved by the imposing architectural structure and by the economic effort that were needed to build the Policlinico. Admission is free.
