Title: Fascismo Abbandonato: The Children's Colonie of Mussolini's Italy
Authors: Dan Dubowitz
Publisher: Dewi Lewis publishing
Year: 2009
ISBN: 9781904587804
Language: English

Description:
During the period of Mussolini’s Fascist regime ‘colonia’ – holiday centres for children – were established on the northern Italian coasts. Run by paramilitary youth organisations, they brought together modernist architecture, fresh air and discipline with the intention of converting the body and soul of Italian youth to fascist principles.
Now most of them are abandoned and in decay. Dubowitz crossed Northern Italy to track down some of these huge ruins and recorded them in 12 large scale photographic series showing their decay as relics of a megalomaniac architecture of Mussolini’s regime and have to be regarded as impressive victims of the modernist movement in Italy.
