Drawing together imperial projects, modernist aesthetics, and fascist motives, this book examines how the merger of these three significant influences yielded a complex built environment that served to emulate, if not redefine, Italian colonial pursuits. Exploring discourses of modernity in Africa, this book moves between histories of architecture, urbanism and media to describe how Eritrea and Asmara became a crucial fulcrum for Italy's ill-fated pursuits in Ethiopia and other neighboring countries and illustrates how architecture in Asmara reshaped the creation and reception of Italian East Africa.
