In Spain francoist architecture took a more ornate, properly historicist approach, as can be seen in this thread, but this building (national labor union headquarters in Madrid, opposing the Prado museum; built in 1949, designed by Cabrero and Aburto) evokes the modernist spirit of the 1930's fascist architecture. It's one of my favourite buildings in the city

The historicist approach is seen again in the megalomaniac Edificio EspaŮa in the homonym square (1948-1953).

Palazzo Mezzanotte, Milan, Italy. Completed in 1932 with Paolo Mezzanotte as the architect. It's the seat of the Italian stock exchange.

I suppose the finger means the same in Italy. The point is that the other fingers are cut, not folded, so when you look at the monument from the side it looks like the fascist salute. There seems to be a double sense implied though, because the building is not only a fascist one but also a stock exchange (and this monument was erected after the 2008 financial crisis). Or say they say, if I understood it correctly.

LOVE means Libertŗ (Freedom), Odio (Hatred), Vendetta (Revenge), Eternitŗ (Eternity).

The sculpture has a double meaning.

The hand is a clear reference to the fascist salute...



...but with the fingers eroded by the time (in Italy, Fascism has fallen in 1943), except for the middle finger.



The middle finger indicates "f*ck-you" to the palace behind: it's a deep critic towards the architecture style of the palace itself (Fascism architecture) and on what it represents (the Milan Stock Exchange, ie the world of finance, capitalism).

I think it is a huge shame that Termini station was never completed in accordance to the original design. It would have been a station truly worthy of Rome. I still like the sides which was built in Mazzonis design though.

Palazzo delle Poste, Latina, Italy. Completed in 1932 with Angiolo Mazzoni as the architect. The building have sadly been completely ruined (in my view) and it is unrecognizable today. Here it is on streetview: https://www.google.com/maps/place/41...7597!4d12.9037
