Who is

Antonio Sant'Elia (1888-1916)

Architect of the Italian futuristic movement, Antonio Sant'Elia was born in 1888. In 1912, he opened a design office in Milan. From this year on, he illustrates in drawings, an ideal city project, inspired by the industrial cities of the United States as well as by the architects Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos. His ideal city, Citta Nuova, incarnates according to him the symbol of a new era.

Sant'Elia publishes in 1914 the famous "Manifesto of Futuristic Architecture".

The underlying theory is directly linked to the concept of a futuristic architecture with decorative value that would depend only on the use (and composition) of the raw materials used. His city is highly mechanized and industrialized. It is oriented around the life of the city. His drawings will have a real influence in urban projects throughout the twentieth century.
