A large, exclusively designed book was made at the 10th anniversary of the Fascist Italy and showcases the industrial growth in the country between 1922-1932. 15 richly illustrated chapters showcase different engineering and construction achievements, such as new roads, schools, public buildings, housing projects, damps, aqueducts, river regulations, bridges, reconstructions of churches, etc.
Throughout the book repeats a pattern of art-deco Fascist illustrations: the chapters are divided with title pages, decorated with highly decorative images, accompanied with Fascist symbols, each chapter begins with a striking red pictorial vignette, and black and white illustrations are accompanied with similar grey vignettes. Also the endpapers represent a mixture of abstract shapes of industry and Fascist symbols.
