EURegeneration



The Esposizione Universale di Roma (better known by its acronym, EUR) was commissioned by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in the 1930s to showcase architecture that portrayed his fascist ideologies. Today, it is a thriving commercial suburb. The creation of the EUR was a huge, 1930s urban regeneration project, spearheaded by Mussolini, Italy’s controversial prime minister andself-titled Il Duce (meaning “the Leader”), who intended to showcase the area at the 1942 World’s Fair to celebrate 20 years of fascist Italy. However, the World’s Fair was abandoned at the onset of World War II,and, subsequently, Mussolini’s ambitious EUR project was left incomplete. Although workcontinued after the war ended, the newer buildings lacked the influence of political agenda and failed to match the grandeur of the regime’s earlier architecture. The area as it stands today retains the tantalizing air of an unfinished project. After the war, the uncompleted EUR development was severely damaged. However, the Roman authorities found that EUR could be the onset of an out-of-town business district, which other capitals did not begin planning until decades later (London Docklands and La Défense in Paris). Therefore, during the 1950s and 1960s the unfinished Fascist-era buildings were completed, and other new buildings were built in contemporary styles for use as offices and government buildings, set in large gardens and parks. EUR was almost fully completed for the 1960 Olympics, held in Rome.
