Date(s): 12.03.15 - 14.06.15. Venue: Ara Pacis, Lungotevere in Augusta, 00186 Rome, Italy.

The 'Esposizione Universale Roma. A New City From Fascism To The 1960s' documentary exhibition is being held at the Ara Pacis Museum until the 14th June 2015. This southern district of Rome was originally chosen by Benito Mussolini as the city's district to be renovated and urbanised, in order to host the World Fair (Esposizione Universale) in 1942, as well as to host the celebrations of 20 years of fascism. The project was often shortened to 'E42'. However, the planned expo and celebrations never took place due to World War II. Esposizione Universale Roma, nowadays shortened to EUR, was also suppose to extend Rome to the south and towards the sea and become the city centre. Curated by Vittorio Vidotto, there are three exhibition sections spanning the district's past and present:
The first part of the exhibition addresses the premise of the original E42 project
The second part focuses on the post-war period during which the fate of the new district remained uncertain
The third part deals with the rebirth and transformation of the EUR district
