What is fascist architecture? I would call the above examples stripped classicism.

Is the Finnish Parliament building in Helsinki, completed in 1931 as a symbol of a yound democratic republic also "fascist"?

^ there is certainly an association between fascist regimes and various nuances of neoclassical, but there isn't a fascist architectural style. So the above is just coincidental, I suppose.

The public works of Mussolini's regime also exhibitied decidedly futurist aesthetics...

more than futuristic, I think that's Art Deco, which itself already looks very futuristic.

^ so you agree with him essentially.

That style is not Art Deco but a closely related style that however remains different in one key aspect: it rejected ornament. I don't know how it is known in Italy, but in Romania these architects called themselves constructivists (a movement not to be confused with Russian constructivism, which was 100% avantgarde). Streamline Moderne is the corresponding US phenomenon afaik.

Indeed the proper name would be Italian rationalism, having a key feature in a streamlined and neat design. "Fascist" is a later corruption of ratuonalism. Much more ornate.

Great thread! I wonder why I got here so late as I am big fun of modernism (pre-war).
As in Gdynia we have mostly pre-war modernism I don't recall any significant nazi "tribute" to city archictecture.
I'm going on beginning of October to Bari. I wonder if I can find some significant fascist architecture there (Tarent, Brindisi and Lecce also).
Do you guys know know sth in this matter?

Ossario di Oslavia (Gorizia, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy)
Year: 1938 - Architect: Ghino Venturi

The monument was created by the fascist regime to accommodate the remains of the 57,741 soldiers who fell in different battles fought around Gorizia and Tolmin (now part of Slovenia) during the Great War.

Monumento alla Vittoria / Siegesdenkmal (Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige/Sudtirol, Italy)
Year: 1926-1928 Architect: Marcello Piacentini

The monument was erected on the personal orders of Benito Mussolini in Alto Adige/Sudtirol, which had been annexed from Austria after World War I.
Its construction in Fascist style, displaying lictorial pillars, was dedicated to the "Martyrs of World War I".

The following Latin script can be seen on the main façade:
HIC PATRIAE FINES SISTE SIGNA / HINC CETEROS EXCOLVIMVS LINGVA LEGIBVS ARTIBVS
Here at the border of the fatherland set down the banner. From this point on we educated the others with language, law and culture.



The inscription, referring to Roman imperial history, was seen as provocative by many within the German-speaking majority in the province of South Tyrol. On the day of the inauguration there was a counter-demonstration with 10,000 people in Innsbruck.
