The architectural design for Palazzo M is in the shape of the capital letter M for Mussolini, built from a plan that shows it surrounding a landscape featuring the same letter on the floorscape. Seen here from the top of the skyscraper Torre Pontina, the building was designed in 1942 and built soon after. It was inaugurated on 21 April 1943 and used briefly as the Casa del Fascio, until the fall of fascism within months. Initially it also had a tower that has since been dismantled.
