Description: After spending his childhood in Tuscany, Orsino Bongi moved to Milan to attend the Scuola superiore di architettura at the Regio Istituto tecnico superiore (today’s Politecnico di Milano). He taught at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and worked on numerous projects for several of the pavilions at the International Exposition of Milan in 1906, including the massive French Pavilion. His team won a prize for the general project of the Padiglione Agraria, built in the Art Nouveau style. Bongi was also one of the main interpreters of the style known as Medievalismo lombardo (see his Galleria Warowland in Salsomaggiore Terme, which was commissioned to him by Count Ladislao Tyszkiewicz).
