National Fascist Party Of Italy`s headquarters in Rome

Postby SeaofJapan » 02 Sep 2008 19:43

Whats up with the "Si, si si si si si si si si" and that weird sculpture of Il Duce`s face?



Looks really weird, but i bet it some form of propaganda? Well i have never seen anything like it. I mean the face is really weird and looks like something from a movie...

I think it looks very powerful.

The building in the picture is Palazzo Braschi in Roma, where was located the HQ of the Rome Fascist Party Federation (the local, not national Party HQ). The "SI SI ..." lettereing (meaning "Yes Yes ...) are propaganda for one of the two "plebiscite" elections held during the Fascist Regime, where electors didn't voted for individual parties - there wasn't any but the Fascist one! - neither for single candidates, but just voted "Yes" or "Not" to a single list of candidates presented by the Duce himself.

I do have a picture of Palazzo Braschi adobed (much more soberly!) for the first plebiscite (1929) so this picture is quite certainly for the second one (1934).
