Montuori, Eugenio

Montuori, Eugenio (1907–82). Italian architect best known for the Stazione Termini, Rome (from 1947). With other Italian architects associated with Terragni, he won the competition to design the new town of Sabaudia, one of five towns planned by the Fascist regime as part of the reclamation of the Pontine Marshes near Rome. The architecture, which was stark and tough, was firmly embedded in the Rationalism and Neo-Classicism that evolved in Italy during the 1930s. Montuori designed the concourse for the Railway Station, Venice (1934), the town-plans of Bolzano (1936) and Carbonia (1940), and various Classicizing buildings at the University of Rome (1935) and the Piazza Imperiale, Rome (1940s).
