Designed in 1937 as part of Mussolini's plan for the 1942 World Exhibition. The exhibition never took place, but the building did. Incorporated in a much bigger urban plan it looks stunning. The latest restoration did a good job bringing it back to its full...More

This Palazzo is better known as “The Square Colosseum”. There are 216 arches lining the palazzo. In 2015, the fashion house Fendi moved its headquarters into the Palazzo della Civilta Italiana. The 75-year-old building was never occupied prior to Fendi’s arrival! Fendi has been in...More

This building is awesome. We could visit the Fendi exhibition about fur coats worn in important movies. Great fun and free. On specific spots they took pictures of you with an instant camera, if you like, and it's a present. So nice.

So elementary and so derivative (it's called the "square colosseum" derisively), but also very visually striking. The building design definitely succeeds in giving off an authoritarian posture, and I think you can only experience/understand that by seeing it in person. We enjoyed our Fascist Rome...More

My father was very impressed with this unfinished building when he was here with the Allies late in World War 2 so I was keen to see it. The design and the extraordinary high ceilings, as well as the extensive use of marble are indeed...More
