On the rear façade, the Spanish architect emphasised the building's structural configuration with an image that emphasises its vaults and resembles 17th and 18th century reproductions.
The interior, no hint of which is visible on the outside, now has two new staircases in addition to those already present as well as a large ramp taking visitors to the panoramic hall on the fourth floor.
This observatory space used exclusively by students of astronomy is surrounded by glass, offering views over the harbour and the city of Genoa.
