I agree with you totally. There are many memories of fascism in the buildings of Rome, the University being a good example and a fine piece of architecture as well. The mammoth statues in Franco's memorial to the Civil War with attendant underground basilica are another. Those involved in creating them may have been mongrels but that does not justify their destruction.

So let it be for Sutherland.
