Need a break from Roman ruins? Then take a short metro ride to one of the EUR stops and check out a very architecturally modern piece of Rome. This is also Fendi's HQ and we got to go inside to see a 'Fendi Studios' exhibit...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

The Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, also known as the Colosseo Quadrate ('Square Colosseum"), is an icon of Fascist architecture and one of Rome's most recognizable modern landmarks. It was built (like much of the area, called EUR for the Esposizione Universale Roma) for the 1942...More
