Detail of a relief of a soldier by Vico Consorti, 1902-79, on the Ponte Duca d'Aosta, built 1939-42 in Fascist style by Vincenzo Fasolo, a bridge linking Lungotevere Flaminio to Piazza Lauro De Bosis, near the Foro Italico, Rome, Italy. Fascist architecture developed in the late 1920s and 1930s, as a modernist style in times of nationalism and totalitarianism under Benito Mussolini. It is characterised by large, square, symmetrical buildings with little or no decoration, often inspired by ancient Rome and designed to convey strength and power. Picture by Manuel Cohen
