5. [Interior view of the Italian Pavilion at the Century of Progress International Exposition. The Pavilion's giant airplane-shaped design celebrated Italo Balbo's transatlantic flight to 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 also resembled the bundled fasces, an ancient symbol of the Roman Republic that was adopted by Italian and German fascists in the 20th century. Pictured here is a model of the Italian Ocean liner S.S. Rex. The Rex was launched in 1931 and operated until allied bombers destroyed the ship in 1944.]
