I made my first visit to Milano Centrale (Milan Central Station) in February 2000.
Earlier this month (April 2017), I revisited this amazing example of railway architecture and made these photos using my Lumix LX7.
Recently, I featured Milano Centrale in my book Railway Depots, Stations & Terminals published by Voyageur Press.
Here’s an excerpt of my text:
Milano Stazione Centrale (Milan Central Station) is a monumental railway terminal that faces the Piazza Anrea Doria. . . [the station’s] design was the result of an architectural competition held in Milan in 1913 . . . Although the plan dated from before World War I, its blocky style and super human scale seems to typify the public architecture of the interwar Fascist period. [Milano Stazione Centrale] was one of the last great railway stations built in Europe before World War II.
