Easy to get to....metro stop EUR Magliana. Building can be seen as you leave the train station.
The free presentation is hands on artisans demonstrating how Fendi make their product. Shoes, handbags, clothes, furniture and watches. You can ask as many questions as you want....More

Step outside of Ancient Rome and head to EUR to see the "square Colosseum." I was pleasantly surprised with this building and the current art exhibition inside, which is now the FENDI Headquarters. You can easily take the metro here and then a bus to...More
So elementary and so derivative (it's called the "square colosseum" derisively), but also very visually striking. The building design definitely succeeds in giving off an authoritarian posture, and I think you can only experience/understand that by seeing it in person.
