The city of Sabaudia

Sabaudia represents the aesthetic and political ambitions of the early 20th century. The town was established as part of Mussolini’s effort to reclaim an agriculture desolate zone, south of Rome. Drawn up by a group of modernist architects who won a design competition in 1933, Sabaudia was constructed entirely from scratch in 253 days, by over 6,000 laborers toiled night and day to finish in time for the dedication by King Vittorio Emanuele III.

Sabaudia and other new towns were intended as part of an Italian "New Deal" to provide employment for jobless veterans by moving them to farmsteads, somewhere to reconnect with traditional values and the soil. Sabaudia today has sixteen thousand residents living in and around a striking, harmonious ensemble of original fascist-era landmarks. There is a massive cinema, an imposing church with a cylindrical baptistery, a hospital, and military barracks. Another example is the post office, a colorful masterpiece designed by futurist architect Angiolo Mazzioni and covered in shimmering blue tiles and red marble accents, has just undergone a meticulous $3.5 million restoration. It now serves as the city’s library and archives.

After Le Corbusier visited Sabaudia in 1934, he described it as "a sweet poem. Perhaps a little sentimental, but built of good taste, a true vision of love". In recent decades Sabaudia served as an inspiration to urbanist architects’ designs for walkable, compact towns in the United States.

Damn this architecture looks so good. Perfect balance between the modern era and the classical.

Some better photos of the Post Office in Sabaudia. I don't know it it really fits in this thread, though, since Italian Rationalism was different than the stripped neo-classicism you usually associate with fascist architecture.

The Nuremberg Congress hall:





The Zeppelingield ranting-stand


I believe this avenue up to the Vatican took on its present form in the Fascist era, but I could be mistaken about that.



The Altare della Patria was finished off under Mussolini:

The Nazis invented Brutalism. Quite ironic that post-war developers deployed a style functional for gun emplacements for palaces of culture in the post-war period, like London's South Bank...

http://www.lth-hotels.com/southbank-centre-london.htm

Clearly reminiscent of Nazi gun emplacements:





nazi-occupied Jersey, etc.


Guernsey.
