The runners at the Colosseo Quadrato steps

The runners at the Colosseo Quadrato steps
On a hot afternoon in Spring 2003 I was happy to find these ragazzi labouring up and down the steps of Mussolini's famous monument to architectural idealism.

Scanned from a Velvia slide.

From Wikipedia:
The Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, also known as the Palazzo della Civiltà del Lavoro or simply the Colosseo Quadrato (Square Colosseum) is an icon of Fascist architecture. It lies in the district of Rome known as the Esposizione Universale Roma (also known as 'E.42' and 'EUR'). It is particularly symbolic of this district, exemplifying its monumentality.
