    A must visit told me, but in front of the building difficult to understand it's better to have the description before we will look at in a different light the old Casa del Fascio of Como in Italy is perhaps the best known building of the Italian rationalist architect Giuseppe Terragni. This monument is considered both as an example of modern architecture that Italian as part of a branch of fascist architecture. Started in 1932 and completed in 1936 under the regime of Benito Mussolini, this municipal administration building was built originally in a perspective of functionalism as an elegant setting for the fascist demonstrations. Designed in the manner of the classic Palazzi around a glass atrium, it was decorated with abstract frescoes (destroyed since) the artist Mario Radice, and the original project boasted changing illuminations on the façade. The building has the shape of a large parallelepiped formed by pure geometric elements: the long façade of 33,20 meters with a height of half, presents a full and smooth and a part consisting of simple beams poles playing on an effect of solids and voids. Materials (clear cement, glass and metal) are associated to create parallel and perpendicular lines. The Interior is covered with white marble and black marble of Belgium. Today the building is the seat of the provincial command of the Guardia di Finanza Como.

  • Giuseppe Terragni's most famous work. The scale is smaller than imagined. It's a pity that the building is not open to public.
  • A well-preserved relic of modernism from the 2nd World War, created under the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. At that time as the seat of the national fascist party, Guardia di Finanzia today as an administrative building. A work by Giuseppe Terragni, an Italian rationalist architect. The building was built with the large interior Atrium between 1932-1936 - it occurs as a work in this day and age in appearance.

Where to stay in Como

Indulge yourself by booking a luxurious suite at a lavish hotel right on the shores of Lake Como. Pricey hotels and private villas may provide an ideal lakeside setting, but you can save money by staying at a B&B in the city of Como itself. The city is much less expensive than the resorts of the so-called "middle lake," but be sure to book early. Even less expensive is staying in Milan, from which you easily access the lake district by train or car.
