168. Roma. E.U.R. Palazzo dei Congressi


Dear Oscar,

My friend Curzio took me to see the Palazzo dei
Congressi at the EUR. I was surprised with
Libera's ability of giving to this building a singular
style that I could describe as between modernism
and neo-classicism. But I was shocked when I got into
the Salone della Cultura. To get an idea of its impressive
size I can say that this space is a cube measuring 38
meters on each side, a volume which could contain the
entire Pantheon.

Best regards.
R
