The panorama of European architecture inthe 20th Century was particularly marked bythe innovation brought by Modernism.In Italy, this new scenario broughtwith it a specific approach, better knownas Italian rationalism, which led toadditional compositional and figurativeimplications in architecture,influenced by Futurism.This movement, as seen in the major workson the history of contemporary architecture,essentially revolved around thefigure of Antonio Sant’Elia, one ofits leading interpreters and a fundamentalpoint of reference for the work ofAngiolo Mazzoni.Futurism, in a nutshell, aimed to simplifyarchitectural forms, searching for solutionswhich clearly took into account the newelements of the city, increasingly linked to thenature of its infrastructures and in particularthose regarding transport. These works had toincreasingly characterize the designof the city and serve as recognizableelements, in visions that assumed ageographic dimension.
