Ferrara 1885-1943
Chief engineer of the municipality of Ferrara, a position that he even retained under fascism, despite his declared socialist ideas, thanks to his friendship with chief magistrate Renzo Ravenna; together with his younger brother, Carlo, he contributed to the modernisation of Ferrara’s urban fabric with his projects.
