Sculpture of the Capitoline Wolf, a she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus, founders of Rome, on the Ponte Flaminio, built 1938-51, designed by Armando Brasini, 1879-1965, in Fascist style, with columns and monumental sculptures of eagles, Corso di Francia, 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
