If you look up and watch the great capitals of the columns, you’ll find one of the constants decorative building, a small envelope with wings and a subtle rays symbolizing communication systems prevailing at the time, the postal and telegraph.

In the front you will find a sculpture of five monumental figures representing an allegory symbolizing the five continents international communication.
