The central core, designed by architect Ratti of the Clementine Academy of Architecture, foresees a regular volumetrical layout with stylistic references to 15th century Florentine art. The façades, divided into two levels with ashlar-type facing, with a decorative cornice originally topped by a clock-tower, linked at road level by a shelter-roof supported on marble columns, built in the post-war period following the demolition of the original metal cantilevered roof. Various enlargement works, such as the construction in 1926 of the west wing for the new head tracks and of the east wing in 1934, together with the post-war alterations, have altered its layout and appearance.
