Casa del Fascio
A Great example of Rationalism in Italy
The building is considered the masterpiece of Rationalism in Italy. It was designed by architect Giuseppe Terragni in 1932 and completed in 1936. Its modernity, which was uncommon back in the 1930’s, is still surprising now. It combines innovation in the choice of materials and very clear lines, typical aspects of rationalism. Architects, tourists and visitors come from everywhere to see and study this extraordinary building.
Since 1957, the building has housed the provincial headquarters of the Guardia di Finanza (Italian law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance).
