Richard Etlin’s sweeping, generously illustrated study explores the changing idea of modernism in Italian architecture over the five crucial decades that saw the birth and crystallization of modern architecture. Systematically treating the major architects and movements of the period-such as Raimondo D’Aronoco and Art Nouveau, Antonio Sant’Elia and Futurism, Marcello Piacentini and the modern vernacular, Giovanni Muzio and the Novecento, Giuseppe Terragni and Italian Rationalism-this book also explores the ways in which the original ideals of the various movements were transformed by working for the Fascist state.
