  Esposizione Universale Roma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Esposizione Universale Roma (E.U.R.) is a large complex, built in 1935 by Benito Mussolini as symbol of fascism for the world; he wanted to expand the new Rome in the west, to connect it to the sea.
The E.U.R. district was originally conceived for the 1942 world exhibition, and was called "E.42" ("Esposizione 42").
The E.U.R. provides a large-scale image of how urban Italy might have looked if the fascist regime had not fallen during the war; large, symmetrical streets and austere buildings of either stile Littorio, inspired by ancient Roman architecture, or Rationalism, built in the traditional limestone, tuff and marble.

Rome (Italian and Latin: Roma) is the capital city of Italy and of the Lazio region, as well as the country's largest and most populous comune, with about 2.5 million residents (3.8 million considering the whole urbanised area, as represented by the Province of Rome).
Located on the Esquiline Hill, Rome's central station, called Roma Termini, was opened in 1863, then demolished and completely rebuilt between 1939 and 1951; it is currently operated by Grandi Stazioni and mainly served by Trenitalia.
The area was later partly redesigned and renamed EUR (Esposizione Universale di Roma: Rome Universal Exhibition) in the 1950s to serve as a modern business district.

 The Modern Sack of Rome
EUR, they reasoned, could be marketed as an international trade center with exceptional exhibition and meeting facilities and ideal sites for corporate headquarters and government offices, as well as homes for their executives.
EUR was then to finance further development, and pay off the government loan, from the proceeds of sale of land for private office and residential development, along with the rental of the public halls and buildings, which it would own.
Thus, EUR cannot serve as a model for the development of new towns for all income groups or of the population densities needed for the daily vitality and economic success of any community without so specialized an economic base or class of residents.

 Walking Mussolini's Fascist Utopia - New York Times
The most ambitious of Benito Mussolini's building plans, the 420-acre EUR was to be an entirely new city rivaling in scale and grandeur the capital of his imperial predecessors.
The acronym stands for Esposizione Universale di Roma, planned as an international exposition to open in 1942, showcasing the glories of imperial Rome's past and future.
EUR was never fully realized as originally envisioned, since the exposition was delayed first by World War II and then canceled altogether after the collapse of Mussolini's regime in 1943.

EUR was conceived by Mussolini in the mid-1930s as the site for his planned World Fair of 1941-42, to display "the spiritual and material accomplishments of various nations".
In the 1950s work on EUR resumed and it is now the most modern commercial centre in the capital - the closest thing Rome possesses to a Canary Wharf or La Defense.
