CCR Walks: October Anniversaries - October 22, 2022

Mussolini was sure Italy’s prowess in sport would lead to a stronger, more prolific, and healthier race. The colossal sporting complex at the Foro Italico includes the Stadio dei Marmi which maintains many visible signs of Italy’s fascist past. These were allowed to stay in place, including a massive obelisk with the word DUX engraved upon it, after his fall. In the week leading up to the March on Rome’s 100th anniversary, it is only fair to use this occasion to ask a few questions. Was it right to keep such visible symbols of this regime? Did Italy’s post-fascist transition work out? How much of this legacy still lives on? To conclude this walk we will visit the nearby Pons Milvius, one of Rome’s less visited historic bridges.
