The Square Coliseum is the symbol of Marcello Piacentini's neo-classicism, a fascist architect from Mussolini’s era. The building, called the Palace of Italian Civilization, was recently restored and is symbolic of the EUR neighborhood which was also designed during this period. The design of the Square Coliseum was entrusted to the architects Giovanni Guerrini, Ernesto Bruno La Padula and Mario Romano, and was built between 1938 and 1943. The architecture of the monument, strongly backed by Benito Mussolini, was inspired by the Roman Colosseum using rows of arches: six horizontal rows of nine arches each. The exterior of the Square Coliseum is covered with travertine and was built on a podium with two steps. At the four corners of the podium there are four equestrian sculptures representing the Dioscuri by Publius Morbiducci and Alberto Fern. This building is set to host the Audiovisual museum together with a State discotheque and a permanent exhibition of "Made in Italy" and a wine exposition.
