World War II Sites : Rome

The late 1930’s were global times of darkness. Japan and China were involved in the notorious Marco Polo Bridge battle.  The eastern part of the world was getting massacred with Hitler invading Poland and Britain and France announcing war to stop him from doing so. Another significant contribution to World war II was the foundation of Italian Fascism laid down by the dictator Mussolini in the year 1919.

With Hitler’s political Nazi coup and the aggressive policies they implemented, Benito Mussolini chose to ally Italian forces with those of German. On their eastern side, Rome was first invaded by Nazi Germany in 1943. Then in 1944, Britain decided on invading Italy. The Allied forces which included Britain, France, United States military in the majority, bombed Rome in multiple instances between 1943 and 1944 despite the significance of Catholics in the U.S military forces. The Sacred City was attacked from northern as well as the south-east side. The Vatican, which has already declared itself neutral was also attacked twice.

Following are the sites, where the horrendous events of World War ii were unfolded by The Allies as well as by the Axis.

Villa Torlonia:

After laying the foundation for the Italian fascism and forming  Fasci Italiani di Combattimento in Milan, Benito Mussolini, in 1920 rented this lush green villa aligned with pine and palm-trees, in Rome as his accommodation. The dictator builds a royal bunker underneath for easy access to his wine cellar. The Mussolini family lived here until it was attacked by the Allied High Command in 1943 and Mussolini was deposed and executed. The village has been reopened as a museum in 2004, to take it’s visitor back into the times of dictatorship and war.

History Museum Of Liberation:

Called Museo Storico della Liberazione in Italian, this museum is located close to the Basilica of St John Lateran. This self-directing building in Via Tasso used to serve as the headquarters for the Nazi Schutzstaffel and  Gestapo at the time of occupation of Rome. The museum has a prison wherein the Nazi supporters and military forces used to incarcerate, torture and execute the Italian Jewish citizens and the political opponents. A tour to the museum is essential to register into the senses, the physical as well as emotional pain inflicted on the Italians who didn’t bow down to Hitler and his belligerent system.

Abbey Of Monte Cassino:

What one used to be a splendid monastery, ever since its inception in 526 A.D by St. Benedict, is now mourned for being a cataclysmic ruin of a long bloody outbreak. The Battle of Monte Cassino was a result of a misapprehension on the part of an Italian soldier, as surfaced in the book of a glorified military officer, who was a confidential assistant to a leading British General in the liberation of Italy. The soldier mistook an Italian word for the abbot to battalion, which enraged the Allies since it was a breach of the agreement of the Vatican being a neutral city. What followed was a series of four horrific assaults in the area held by the Axis. The causality included some 250 men, women and children and a massive number of Allied soldiers lost their lives.

Stuffed vegetables

Who does not like stuffed peppers or zucchini. These dishes are known and loved in all the cuisines of the world. However, vegetables and minced meat can endlessly change, but the result is always happy. The easiest way is to cook stuffed vegetables in the ripening season, when there are so many of them, that the eyes are scattered, and with each one you want to experiment, or, on the contrary, prepare the most traditional, long-tried and loved dish. Both on a casual and festive table, the stuffed vegetables look great, attract everyone’s attention and decorate the meal. You can choose the desired calorie content of the dish, taking as the main ingredient fillings of minced meat or, for example, mushrooms.

Go compact and camouflaged in a busy room. Use mirrored surfaces to make wall cupboards fall away from attention. This neat vanity table and vanity chair are neutral so as not to overcomplicate an already stacked scheme.

Use decorative layering. An spectacular round hanging mirror is suspended in front of stunning boiserie and a floral art print for a chic layered look. A metallic modern makeup vanity is matched by a coral dressing chair with golden legs.

Illuminate your best features. Colorful glass vases paint this bathroom makeup vanity in luminous shades of green and blue. The Bellini style chair is an good choice for a humid bathroom space as it is essentially a modern outdoor chair, so there’s no cushioned upholstery to get damp and harbour mildew from the steam.

Play up your best assets. We all know that natural light helps in applying the right coverage of daytime makeup, so if you have space by a window, use it. You should try not to block too much of your glorious sunlight from the rest of the room though. This slimline console lets the light and the view flow on by.

Why not utilise an existing full length bedroom floor mirror as your new vanity makeup mirror?

Create one cohesive dressing environment. To incorporate a makeup station into a sleek dressing room, keep furniture in a matching style. This freestanding modern white vanity table has a similar style to the rest of the open fronted closet furniture, to create an easy flow. The chamois stool links with the colour of adjacent shelving.

Link study and dressing areas. Streamline and save space with vanity makeup desks. Decorative candle stands at one end and a table lamp at the other mark when the makeup zone starts and stops.

Visualizer: Evgeniy Zhdanov  

Create your own wall space. A small dividing wall is all that’s needed to anchor a fully fledged makeup vanity with lights to boot.
