    Description :

    The Ospedale Niguarda Ca’ Granda was opened in October 1939. Engineer Giulio Marcovigi and architect Giulio Ulisse Arata carried out the project, and the monumental and rationalist architecture of the building expresses a strong bond with the city itself and its history.

    “To many critics, Arata seemed obscure in his meaning, reaching an ungracious restlessness comparable to ugly American building. To others, he succeeded in breaking through the limits of historicism to a modern idiom…Arata was ‘a conqueror of academic frigidity,’ ‘among the most thoroughly imbibed of the modern spirit’ with the capacity to reinvent tradition.”
