[Interior view of the Italian Pavilion at the Century of Progress International Exposition. The Pavilion
1. [Interior view of the Italian Pavilion at the Century of Progress International Exposition. The Pavilion was designed to resemble a giant airplane to celebrate Italo Balbo's transatlantic flight that ended at the Century of Progress in 1933. Balbo was an Italian fascist, a leader of the Blackshirts, and a minister in Benito Mussolini's government. The front of the building sported a design that resembled the bundled fasces, an ancient symbol of the Roman Republic that was adopted by Italian and German fascists in the 20th century. Seen here is the land reclamation exhibit located in the north wing of the Pavilion.]

5. [Photo of the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. The Field Museum opened in 1893 as part of the World Columbian Exposition in Hyde Park. The museum moved to its current location on park district space along the lakefront near downtown in 1921, and by 1930, it was joined by the addition of the Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium nearby. Although technically not part of the Century of Progress, the three lakefront museums were located immediately north of the Fairgrounds and thus attracted many visitors from the Chicago World's Fair.]
