Community of travellers. Photoreports from different places of the world.

Quarter of the world exhibition (Esposizione Universale di Roma, "world Expo of Rome", abbreviated as EUR) was built by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini as the venue for the world exhibition of 1942 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Fascism and the beginning of the Nazi era. The fair never took place due to world war II

2. The best known building of the quarter EUR is Palazzo della Civilta Italiana (Palace of Italian civilization), better known as the Colosseo Quadrato or Square Colosseum

3. To get from Rome to the Square Coliseum is the most convenient metro stop EUR Magliana. It's only 20 minutes by metro from Termini metro station on blue line

4. The Palace of Italian civilization — the symbol of Fascist architecture inspired by 2,000-year-old Roman Colosseum

5. Like a Roman Colosseum, the Palace has a series of recessed balconies, located on the facade into six rows of nine arches each. Many people believe that these numbers correspond to the number of letters in the name "Benito", and name "Mussolini"

6. After the war, the EUR was transformed into a business quarter and six-storey Palace of the Italian civilization over the next decades mostly served as an object of inspiration for many filmmakers, including footage of the Square Colosseum in the films

7. The traditions of ancient Roman architecture, in addition to encircling arcades, remind installed around the perimeter of the Square Colosseum 28 allegorical statues personifying various spheres of science and art, and at the corners of the Palace — sculpted figures of ancient heroes-the twins, the Dioscuri, sons of Zeus and Leda

8.The Palace is completely covered with marble, which is typical for all buildings of the quarter of EUROS. Its scale is imposing: the base covers an area of 8 400 square meters, and its height of 68 meters

9. The square Colosseum has to his credit more than one film. Among the most famous movies "based", you can name the novel by Federico Fellini "the Temptation of Senor Antonio" from the film "Boccaccio 70" (1962) and the films of Bernardo Bertolucci "the Conformist" (1970), Peter Greenaway's "the Belly of an architect" (1987) and Hollywood blockbuster "Hudson hawk" (1991) with Bruce Willis
