EUR42 is inspired by Fellini’s Roma final scene which depicts group of motorcyclists driving through the streets of Rome at night. Their headlights light up monuments and statues which cast dancing shadows on the facades of buildings behind them. EUR42 relocates the scene to EUR (Esposizione Universale di Roma), a residential and business district in Rome, Italy. The area was originally chosen in the 1930s as the site for the 1942 World’s Fair which Benito Mussolini planned to open to celebrate twenty years of Fascism. The World Fair never took place due to II WW.
