The Rome district called Eur (Universal Exposition Rome) was born in 1938 from the original project called E42, under the direction of the famous architect, Marcello Piacentini. Eur has been also called "Europe district".

Eur can be defined an harmonious fusion between the inspiration to a classic roman empire urban model, where the largest use of marble with travertine remembers the ancient majestic Imperial Roman temples and buildings, and the Italian rationalism elements, with their perpendicular axis and with architectural majestic buildings and imposing that make the district, under an architecturally point of view, one of the most modern in the world.

The representative Guglielmo Marconi square is the dynamic gravitational center of this area in which all the main roads of Eur cross and it has been dedicated to one of the most Italian important inventors of modernity. The obelisk, unmistakable symbol of Eur district, stands in the middle of this square. It has been completely realized in white marble and, with its 44 meters height, it is the absolute “ruler” of the square and it is also the main urban point of reference for all the commercial and business activities in the surrounding areas.

In the ancient Art Palace, which overlooks Guglielmo Marconi square, there is a large rectangular hall on the first floor, delimitated in the shortest sides with two pairs of monumental columns eleven meters high made of fine dark Portoro marble with suggestive golden flames. This space is now called Spazio Novecento.
