    A place of transit without too much significance. There is not a must-see tourist spot.

    During the twenty years there have been many urban interventions by the regime. It is well known the love that il duce had for gatherings of crowds, but to do this it took the appropriate squares. It was also necessary to communicate through architecture the philosophy of the regime. the exaltation of Roman Italy and its imperial destiny. I don't know why she was chosen Brescia; the fact is that the city suffered, unlike other, a substantially amends that changed forever the historical centre. The architect in charge of you was Marcello Piacentini, the top of the time. On the other hand to him was entrusted the project to EUR (esposizione_universale_roma) which was to be held in 1942, but took place in the advent of war. Victoria Square completed in 1932 was a kind of dress rehearsal: post office building, skyscraper, porches for Commerce, arengario (a kind of pulpit layman) for speeches to the crowds. But on the walls of this pulpit are carved in-relief panels of the main episodes, even mythical, of the fate of Italy. This with respect to the past. And now we come to this: after years of neglect and non-use of the square (underground garage prevents partly use the presence of blowholes; for a few years it was not possible to use the square to the work of the Metro, which has here of course a stop) the current Administration decided to relaunch as the town square beginning to move the Saturday market , which previously was held in Piazza Loggia. Will it work? The square should not be considered ideologically to be enjoyed!
