The members of the futurist group most associated with architecture during the movement were Antonio Sant'Elia (1888- 1916), Virgilio Marchi (1895- 1960), Enrico Prampolini (1894- 1956), Ivo Pannaggi (1901- 1981) and Angiolo Mazzoni (1894- 1979). Antonio Sant’Elia was born in Como, Italy and graduated from a local institution in 1906 with the qualification of master builder. His first career was as a draughtsman within the city architects department of Milan, and he subsequently studied architecture at Accademia di Brera between 1909 and 1911. In 1912 he designed and built the Villa Elisi in San Maurizio, Como, which shows little relationship to the futurist architecture he would advocate, although there are subtle suggestions apparent in one first floor window detail. This is an encyclopedia entry outlining the development of the Futurist movement in regard to architecture.
