Building by Luigi Moretti in Trastevere, Rome.
GIL, the former Casa del GIL (Casa della Gioventu´Italiana del Littorio) translated to House of the Italian Facist Youth.
So is this a fascist architecture or is this building an empty vessel to fill with something new without hiding or forgetting our history? Can beauty be stolen and forever kept by the bad guys? Will we allow it to be stolen or can we reclaim it and use the travesty: "Why does the devil have to have all the good architecture?" Or are we hurting those who suffered and feeding the evil forces.
Of course architecture can scare you and imprison you, make you small and even make you disappear or trick you to believe in and enchant you with the lies and false prophesies of the dictatorship or scare you by the nightmares in the walls?
Or is it all in the context, possible for us to conquer and claim?
