A fine copy of this classic survey of the architecture of Milan's central Railway Station, one of the monuments of twentieth century architecture, and one of the world's great railway stations. Completed in 1931, the station took forever to build, the corner stone having been laid in 1906. The main construction took place between 1926 and 1931, and the resulting edifice is one of the great monuments of Fascist architecture.
