Scheduled within the city's expansion plan drawn up in 1934, the House of the Fascist Party was built with the funds derived from the dissolution of the Workers' Circle in 1935.

 

Built on the design of Engineer Armando Sabatini, the Casa del Fascio, with its indoor cinema and the G. Marconi Stadium at its back, was inaugurated on 27 November 1937 in the presence of Minister Achille Starace. In 1948, the militaristic inscriptions and emblems that adorned the assembly hall were removed and the building was used as the House of the People.

 

The original project included the travertine lining of the tower at the center of the building, but the placement of slabs for its embellishment, postponed to a stage after its inauguration, has never been relegated. However, the tower with exposed bricks does not fade in a typical architectural system of the time, but rather clean and harmonious in its kind.


Today, the property owned by the Italian state has been transformed into a Carabinieri Barracks. Its exterior appearance remained the original, but the interior has been adapted with heavy transformations to make it functional for new use.
