A walking tour of Como Italy.

This tour focused on the work of Giuseppe Terragani. Terragni began his short but influential architectural career in 1927, opening an office with his brother Attilio, who was a structural engineer , in Como. As founding member of Gruppo 7 he was a driving force in the Italian rationalist movement, Terragni fought to remove Italian architecture from neo-classical and neo-baroque revivalism. He practiced architecture for thirteen years until his death in 1943 of thrombosis.
