A movement that began with a publication by two young architects, Antonio Sant’Elia and Mario Chiattone. They presented a series of designs for a city of the future. Their manifesto proclaimed that architecture was breaking free from tradition, starting from scratch. It had a preference for what is light and practical. None of these designs were ever constructed.
