Ex Casa del Fascio e dell'Ospitalità

The influence of the Fascist regime left its marks also on the contemporary organisation of Predappio. “Palazzo del Fascismo” is sensational for the size and for the contrast created by its colours (white and red). It was projected by the architect Arnaldo Fuzzi and built between 1934 and 1937. It is composed by two outbuildings connected by a central construction functioning as monumental entrance. The lictorian tower rises on a side of the building. It is a symbol of power and a recurrent feature of the powerful and modern Fascist architecture. The ground floor was used to host groups of pilgrims arriving in Predappio and it was the seat of the local recreation centre.
