Antonio Sant?Elia (Como 1888-Monfalcone, 1916), a remarkable Italian futurist architect was once, specially after his early loss of life, a massive impact at the evolution of contemporary structure. He studied in Milan and Bologna. He undertook few commissions and people which have been accomplished have been both later demolished or remodeled. His innovative drawings for destiny towns have been displayed in 1914. He wrote theoretical essays: Messagio and Manifesto dell?architettura futurista. In his tasks the impression of the Vienna Secession, specifically that of Otto Wagner, may be discerned, in addition to the influence of the yank skyscraper. His most crucial works have been the Villa Elisi (1912), and his undertaking for the "New urban" in 1914 (la Citt? Nuova). He volunteered for the military within the First international conflict and died within the conflict of Monfalcone.
