Retrace the history of Fascism in Milan visiting some of the city's monuments associated with the rise and fall of Benito Mussolini. Begin your tour from House of Castani, a baroque palace of the city center, where Mussolini founded the Italian Fasci of Combat, the organization that later turned into the National Fascist Party. Continue to Mezzanotte Palace, home to the Italian stock exchange. Understand why this place turned into a Fascist symbol and admire the provocative statue that contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan placed right in front of it. Reach the Duomo Square where you will see the Arengario Palace; this complex, composed of two symmetrical buildings, has recently turned into a Museum of twentieth-century art. Lastly, visit Milan's Central Railway Station, whose massive dimensions and imposing structure had to represent the power of the Fascist regime.
