The gigantic building, which hosts 1200 apartments, was planned in the 70's by Arch. Mario Fiorentino's team, following social theories of the period. During the construction, a series of issues heavily affected the intended outcome of the experiment and make it an infamous example of urban planning among the Roman residents, who nicknamed it the Serpentone (the big snake).
