Stazione Rogers

...they were running to the opening of the ex Rogers station (from the name of the Italian architect Ernesto Nathan Rogers), a building which is going to become a center for cultural activities.

It's a small building, a former petrol station of the Aquila company, considered a small gem of contemporary Italian architecture.

The project dates back to the 50s and was designed by the famous Milan studio BBPR, whose members included the Triestine architect Ernesto Nathan Rogers, considered one of the founders of Italian contemporary architecture.
