Milano Centrale

Stepping off the train in Milan we found ourselves under an unbrella of steel. The contest for Milano Centrale was won in 1912 by Ulisse Stacchini. Durring World War I construction slowed due to economic influence and once construction resumed in 1925 the vision for the train station included a steel canopy spanning 341 meters long. The new design was headed up by Alberto Fava whcih is the design we experienced on our trip to Milan, Italy.
