    “The Duce invited the Gruppo Toscano to the Palazzo Venezia in June 1934 to congratulate them on their fight for a modern Italian architecture. ‘Go and tell the young architects coming out of the architectural schools to don my uniform: “Do not be afraid to be brave”…I do not want to see case del Balilla [junior sports groups] or case del fascio with the architecture of Depreti’s day…The Station of Florence is beautiful, and the Italian people will like the Station of Florence.’ It seemed like a victory for the Rationalists. In the first major train station since Milan, they had overthrown the tradition of colossal Piranesian grandeur with a machine of sleek functionalism.”
