It was founded in 1871 with the task of conserving the acts of the central bodies of the Pontifical State, the Roman notarial and judicial deeds until the unification of the Reign of Italy, the acts of the State offices based in the present Province of Rome, for the period preceding and following the unity. Some fonds, like that of the State Secretariat, were excluded and went into the Secret Vatican Archive. Since its institution it also had the function of central archive of the new Unitarian State, a task at the moment carried out by the State Central Archive.  Since 1936, after the creation of the university city, the State Archive of Rome, which in the first fifty years had been moved many times, was definitively located inside the Palazzo della Sapienza. Among the important fonds here conserved, are worth mentioning the archive of the Local Tax Office until 1910 with documents relating to the State property, those of the  Civil Engineers until 1954, those of the Prefecture until 1945 and the Police until 1910. massive the archive of the civil and penal court of Rome that covers the period 1871-1897 and that of the Court of Trade until 1888, the archives of the Court of Assizes and the Court of Appeal of Rome until 1921. Here are preserved also archives of Roman noble families that came from acquisitions or donations. In the Archive are located a library and the Scuola di Archivistica Paleografia e Diplomatica, a university School of specialization in Archival science, Palaeography and Diplomatics.
