About

The bronze was meant to be a sport trophy and it represents three athletes. The figures used to hold up a crystal pyramid with written DVX (Dux, the latin word for Duce), as we can deduce by the comparison with an exemplar preserved in the headquarter of the most ancient Gym Society of Italy, based in Turin. It belongs to the Thirties of the 20th century and it's a typical exemplar of Fascism Art, as we can see not only by the style but also by the written on the pedestal "Il Direttorio del PNF" (The Political Directory of the National Fascist Party). It signed on the bronze base G. DE MARCHIS. Giandomenico De Marchis was an italian artist very active during the Fascit Regime. He also worked in the sculpture decoration of the Foro Italico, formerly Foro Mussolini, a sports complex in Rome built between 1928 and 1938.
