Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Angiolo Mazzoni (1894-1979) was one of the most brilliant and prolific Italian architects of the 1920s and 1930s. Mazzoni designed many public buildings during the 1920s and 1930s, among which post offices and train stations. He joined Futurism in the 1930s and co-authored the Manifesto of Aerial Architecture (signed also by F.T. Marinetti). Stylistically rooted in nineteenth-century eclecticism, he was never formally associated with any of the Italian modern movement groups. He had however powerful links to "seconda maniera" (the second wave) Futurism, with connections to the Viennese School of Hoffman and Wagner, and a deeply rooted classical instinct. Throughout his work, his stylistic approach vacillated dramatically, from the overtly bombastic and classical to the dynamically modern. In every case, his handling of composition, solids and voids, light and shade, surfaces and materials, was originally conceived, spirited, poetic, erudite, strong, and full of conviction. After many years of neglect by architectural critics, his legacy is re-emerging and he is being acknowledged as one of the most outstanding Italian architects of the modern period.
