Rome Tunnel del Quirinale

This is another standard wide street that is clearly of considerable commercial importance. The tunnel at its end is an interesting feature that serves to close off the view and make the street comfortable.

If anyone knows why there is a tunnel in this location, please advise.

Note how the building on the right tapers down to a fairly narrow point. While this is by no means the most extreme example of buildings in the shape of a fine wedge, it is certainly among the most attractive.
