The use of Roman former convents as seats of ministries and government offices for the new capital of the Kingdom of Italy, formed part of a major plan of reuse of buildings belonging to religious institutes. These had been suppressed after the unification of Italy and was also influenced by an uncertain diplomatic and military situation. These changes are central events in the process of constituting laws to protect artistic estates in the new unitary state.
