Rome Tames

Back to Mussolini and his aphorisms.

He was a promoting man and like all good dictators was always right.

“Mussolini ha sempre ragione!”

He even had the aphorism printed on the back of school exercise books.

This photo, taken in 2006, is from the northern Italian city of Udine.

The phrase was painted on the side of the building during Mussolini’s reign. Proudly proclaiming ROME TAMES. Beautifully monumental typography.

“No one has stopped us. No one will stop us.”

Yeah right.
