The Esposizione Universale Roma (EUR, originally called EUR42) is a large complex, now a suburban area and business centre, started in 1935 by Benito Mussolini and planned to open in 1942 to celebrate twenty years of Fascism. In urban planning terms, EUR42 was designed to direct the expansion of Rome towards the south-west, connecting it to the sea. The planned exhibition never took place due to Italy's defeat in World War II. EUR offers a large-scale image of how urban Italy might have looked, if the Fascist regime had not fallen; wide axially planned streets and austere buildings, inspired by ancient Roman architecture, or Rationalism, modern architecture but built using traditional limestone, tufa and marble.
