Do you know one common fact for the White House, that was built in 1800, and the Palace of Emperor Diocletian in the Croatian Split, grounded in the distant 305?
Probably the White House for the Americans is the soul of power, stability and prosperity. It is one of the symbols of the American statehood, endowed with the same significance as the Stars and the Stripes. The White House approaches two hundred and twelve years this year.
One has to agree that the White House is not a traditional building for the modern America. It is a residence constructed in the style of near Classicism, characterized by the adherence to the strict principles of symmetry and classical architecture, aroused in the Ancient Greece and Rome. But it is not the singular historic parallel in connection to the American symbols.
The antique principles of symmetry? Sure. However there is one more common fact – white color of the same kind of stone, used during the building. Seems like the White House has pretty fair chances for the long existence.
