The building, built in 1929 in the typical Umbertino style of the time, housed the Health Office for several years. It has been in a state of neglect for the last twenty years, but has recently been renovated following a project by architect Carlo Lococo.

Today it hosts the artistic works owned by the Cerasi Foundation. They are works of the Roman School and of the early twentieth century Italian (Donghi, Balla, Pirandello, Scipione, Mafai, Raphael, Depero, Sironi, de Chirico, Casorati, Campigli, Funi, Martini, Capogrossi, Cambellotti, Francalancia, Mazzacurati, Ziveri, Fazzini, Leoncillo).
