Route 13 - EUR

Definitely an unusual and unexpected run, off the beaten track. The route winds along the white geometrical structures of the EUR, a neighbourhood representative of modern Rome, amid austere and essential architecture, which in some way follow and stylize those of Imperial Rome. The area was originally chosen in 1930s as the site for the 1942 World Fair, which Benito Mussolini planned to open to celebrate twenty years of Fascism, the letters EUR standing for Esposizione Universale Roma. However the Expo never took place due to the beginning of World War II, and the original project was left uncompleted.
