Roma di Mussolini
Like Hitler, Mussolini used Ancient Rome as inspiration and expressed his power through architecture reminiscent of the Ancient Empire. Mussolini took his homage to Ancient Rome farther, however, calling Fascism the heir and continuation of Ancient Rome. His declaration that Fascist Rome would become the next Roman Empire ran as a leitmotif through his rule. Mussolini’s employment of the Roman past is the topic of this paper.
