Weird inside and out. It's Balocco, also known as Rocco Balocco, and it's usually described as a toy store, but also as a seller of baby gear and furniture. You could buy clothes there, too.
If you've been to Eataly in Ostiense, you've seen the funky building, because it's only a few meters from Eataly's main entrance, across the street.
Last spring we sucked it up and went inside (knowing we weren't thinking about buying anything) and took a few photos. Other-worldly one might say. Circus architecture (as if that were a thing). 1980s?? Zany postmodernism?
|Gloomy interior. Odd, given the abundance of natural light.|
Run, don't walk--to Balocco!
