The most representative building of the "Fascist" style at the E.U.R. district is Palazzo della CiviltÓ Italiana, an iconic project which has since become known as the cubic or the "Colosseo Quadrato" the Square Colosseum. It is particularly symbolic of this district, exemplifying its monumentality. The design of the "Square Colosseum" was inspired more to celebrate the Colosseum, and the structure was intended by Benito Mussolini as a celebration of the older Roman landmark. Similar to the Colosseum, the palace has a series of superimposed loggias, shown on the fašade as six rows of nine arches each. These numbers are an allusion to the name of the Fascist dictator: "Benito" having six letters and "Mussolini," nine. It is a parallelepiped on a square base, with six levels rising above a podium. The scale is imposing: the base covers an area of 8,400 square meters, and the building has volume 205,000 cubic meters with a height 68 meters (50 meters from the base).
