Fascist Architecture

Since we already have a thread concerning Socialist Architecture I thought we should dedicate another thread to the architecture of an equally abhorrent political ideology. In this thread I intend to post images of various buildings and monuments constructed in countries that were under the rule of fascist regimes.

I myself find that I am attracted to many of these buildings. They seem to have a stark simplicity, expert use of quality materials and symmetry, and a "stripped" classicism while not exclusive to only fascist countries seems to have its ultimate expression in those countries.

Some of my favorites first and I will post others as I find them.

Valle de los Caídos, Madrid, Spain (1959)
The most amazing building I have ever visited. To me it was even more spectacular than the Sistine Chapel.
