The 1930s

The Piazza Augusto Imperatore Complex originated in the broad urban planning intervention of the years 1926-1944 for development of the area. Designed by architect V.B. Morpurgo, the complex consists of five buildings whose common feature is the austere and imposing architectural layout, surrounded by marble and curtain walling, sculptures and mosaics, highlighting extensive Roman symbolism through the use of impressive walls and large shapes suspended on powerful travertine pillars.

Today, the area is becoming a landmark for the city, a dynamic and attractive promenade.
