One of my working holidays happened recently in Italy in small city of Latina.

With less than 200 000 habitants, this city and the region around it of the province of Lazio was created by Mussolini 1932 under the fascist administration. The idea was to drain the swamp and use it for agricultural purposes.

Located in the center of Latina is the classic communal garden, a green area for recreation, tranquility and children’s recreation – the Mussolini park.


The most famous city center building is probably Palazzo Communale (ita. Town Hall) in the style of rational architecture. The square where the building can be finded is a shining example of the work in style of early 20 century. It is a beautiful terrace with bars and shops and leads to the sea side.
