skyscraper for Mussolini
Abstract
This essay describes in detail the work of Italian/Argentinian architect Mario Palanti, who designed skyscrapers in Montevideo and Buenos Aires and then planned the world's tallest skyscraper for the center of Rome under Mussolini. A storm of protest in the international press ensued and the project was not executed. American architect Cass Gilbert, a great admirer of Mussolini, personally intervened against it.
