The Palace of the Argentine National Congress was started in 1897 and completed in 1906. The dome and the sculpture are well worth stopping to admire. The building was built in the Greco-Roman style by the Italian architect Victor Meano. The dome, which measured 80 meters high, is a spectacular work of engineering, designed to support the 30,000 tons of the central dome. The cap of the dome is a steel lattice structure and the four pillars on the drum are made up of 300 square meters of granite. The dome has a copper cover, so weather and humidity have given it a greenish color. Above the front gable of the building is an ornate 15 meter high sculpture of a chariot by the sculptor Victor de Pol that is 8 feet tall and weighs 8 tons. The chariot is drawn by four horses that symbolize the triumphant Republic, and it is driven by the Winged Victory.
Another monumental work of Salamone, this time in the town of Adolfo Gonzales Chaves. It is, like almost all architectural works, in the province of Buenos Aires.
The imprint of this great architect returns to be seen in his designs, and in the short video that you'll find projected here you can see a strange swirl of leaves, as if the restless spirit of Salamone would continue drawing with the dead leaves.
Initially occupied an old farmhouse on the same block but due to the relentless increase in population, the then Mayor, Don Daniel Videla Dorna ordered the old building to be demolished, and in 1935 he began to build a larger one with modern architecture, it was inaugurated in 1936 and is the current building. Immaculately painted white it has extensive facilities and municipal departments such as the Municipal Health Secretariat and others located there.
