Description
Architectural Revit Model of the 'Square Colosseum' in Rome. This is a generic model, no interior design details. Also DWG and 3DS version are provided. The mapped material is Travertine Marble and is not included in this package. However it can be found easily on the internet and on the autodesk products default libraries.

This model can be used for an Architectural Project, as well as a scene landscape prop (this buildings was in the science fiction movie Equilibrium).

Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana is an icon of Fascist architecture. Decidedly inspired by the 2000 year old elliptical amphitheatre, the Colosseum, Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana was intended by Benito Mussolini as a celebration of the older Roman landmark.

The Esposizione Universale Romana or EUR for short is a suburb, about 20-minute ride away from Rome, built by Italy’s infamous dictator Benito Mussolini as a site for the 1942 world's fair to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Fascism and the beginning of the Fascist era.

The palace is entirely clad in travertine marble, as is characteristic of buildings in the EUR. It is a parallelepiped on a square base, with six levels rising above a podium. The scale is imposing: the base covers an area of 8,400 square meters, and the building has volume 205,000 cubic meters with a height 68 meters.

Because of its bold appearance and iconic status, the building has appeared in a number of films, including The Last Man on Earth, Hudson Hawk, Titus and Equilibrium.

Il palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, talora anche chiamato della Civiltà del Lavoro, è un edificio monumentale che si trova a Roma nel moderno quartiere dell'EUR. Concepito fin dal 1936 e progettato nel 1937, la sua costruzione iniziò nel luglio 1938 e fu inaugurato, benché incompleto, nel 1940; i lavori si interruppero nel 1943 per poi essere ultimati nel dopoguerra.

L’edificio è a pianta quadrata e appare come un parallelepipedo a quattro facce uguali, con struttura in cemento armato e copertura interamente in travertino; presenta 54 archi per facciata (9 in linea e 6 in colonna) e in ragione di ciò è stato ribattezzato anche Colosseo quadrato.
