Rome is fascinating in countless ways, but in none more so than the eras of history evident in its iconic architectural landmarks. If you need a respite from the obvious sights to see, take public transit to the little-visited EUR district south of the city. Here, Mussolini planned a world exposition to open in 1942. But then World War II broke out and the palazzo sat empty for many years, until Fendi set up shop there in 2015. It’s a stunning example of symmetry and stone, stark in its grandeur and a silent witness to the follies of mankind.
