MappaComo, Ex Casa Del Fascio - Novocomum

Civilian architecture in the Como region underwent a major revival in the first decades of the 20th Century under the impulse of rationalism, which found its most significant local expression in the works Giuseppe Terragni. Terragni is responsible for the Novocomum apartment block (1927-29), one of the most interesting examples of this artistic movement and originally painted in vivid colours to highlight the contrast of its different volumes. He also designed the Casa del Fascio (1932-36), built with innovative use of glass and glass cement, and the casa Giuliani-Frigerio, a residential mansion built on a rigorously geometrical shape smoothened by the refined interplay of protrusions and recesses.
