Rome + WWII: Fascist Architecture in Rome

By Ben Ku & Andrew Nip

Over the course of the war, Romans experienced a range of what Fascism brought to the people and there are many structures from this part of Rome’s history that can be found throughout the city. During the 1930s, a number of mostras – public exhibitions – were organized by the Fascists to demonstrate the strength of the Fascist and the state of Italy. During this time, Fascism in Italy was at its peak of popularity and multiple Fascist structures built during this period remain and are still in use. However, during the war the popularity of Fascism dropped as daily hardships became ever increasing and the brutal reprisals against anti-Fascists attacks – such as the Fosse Ardeatine event – were a constant threat hanging over the heads of Romans.
