National Fire Academy (Istituto Superiore Antincendi - ISA)

The area of the ISA is covered by a series of warehouses built between the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century, designed to host the industrial and commercial activities flourishing at that time in Rome, new capital city of Italy (1870). The structure, planned by Mr. Tullio Passarelli, opened in 1912, represents one of the first reinforcedconcrete structures built in Rome, based on impressive metallic structures.

Such structures reached the river Tiber, where food and goods were unloaded from boats and sorted into several warehouses by means of crane wagons and lifting winches.

The Institute organizes training and information programs aimed specifically at officers of the National Fire Corps, as well as seminars and conferences open to the public with the participation of national and international organizations in the field of security, rescue, against fires.
