Italian Architects

A pioneer of the modern movement in Italy, the architect produced some of its most significant buildings. A founding member of the fascist Gruppo 7 and a leading Italian Rationalist, the architect fought to move architecture away from neo-classical and neo-baroque revivalism. In 1926 he and other progressive members of Gruppo 7 issued the manifesto that made them the leaders in the fight against revivalism.

In a career that lasted only 13 years, the architect created a small but remarkable group of designs; most of them were built in Como, which was one of the centers of the Modern Movement in Italy. These works form the nucleus of the language of Italian rationalist or modernistic architecture. The architect was also one of the leaders of the artistic group called “astrattisti comaschi” with Mario Radice and Manlio Rho, one of the most important events in Italian Modern Art. He also contributed to the 1932 Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution.

In his last designs, the architect achieved a more distinctive Mediterranean character through the fusion of modern theory and tradition. He died of thrombosis in Como in 1943. source: wikipedia
