Monument to the Fallen – From a Futurist sketch

0
The Monumento ai Caduti di Como (Como War Memorial) is an imposing tower, 30 metres high, opened by large windows and completely covered in Aurisina and Reppen stone. The monument was inspired by a coloured pencil and watercolour sketch painted in 1914 by the futurist Antonio Sant'Elia, one of the most illustrious Como war dead remembered by the monument. It was the famous Futurist painter Enrico Prampolini who in 1930 took on the task of transforming Sant'Elia's drawing into an architectural work, but it was the architect Giuseppe Terragni who completed the project. The completed monument was inaugurated on 4 November 1933.
