Eur Obelisk


Here a shot of EUR Obelisk in Rome by night . Mussolini-conceived EUR district is full of buildings and urban spaces that best exemplify how architecture could transmit the ideology of Fascism. Many of these Mussolini-era structures were directly inspired by imperial Roman art and architecture, but modified (some more convincing than others) to be colder, more sterile, more totalitarian. I'll show u soon other images about Eur.

Qui uno scatto notturno dell'obelisco dell'EUR. L'Eur è il quartiere della città in cui i palazzi e gli spazi urbani sono la testimonianza di come l'architettura possa trasmettere l'ideologia del fascismo. Molte di queste strutture dell'epoca di Mussolini furono direttamente ispirate all'arte e all'architettura imperiale ma modificate per trasmettere il rigore ed il totalitarismo dell'epoca. Vi mostrerò presto altre immagini dell'Eur.

That is a good pic. When I was living in Rome, I had a girlfriend living in Eur, so seeing this brings back the memories of taking the metro there every day.
I have a request for a picture, one of these days could you maybe show us a good shot from Pincio? I miss it up there.
