[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 1933 transatlantic flight that ended at the Century of Progress. Balbo was an Italian fascist, a leader of the Blackshirts, and one of Benito Mussolini's government officials. 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 a general view of the Pavilion's auditorium.]
