Overview: Fascist-era Architecture in Italy
View down the interior of an arcade on Via Roma; Two competing styles and philosophies marked the period of 1920-1946; Novecento Italiano, which called for a recognizably Italian style with Classical connotations and the practitioners of rationalism or Razionalismo, who aligned themselves with European Modernist trends. Both styles were supported by the Fascist government in various civic works and in new housing developments.
