HOUSES OF THE FIRST LUZZATI COOPERATIVE

CASE DELLA PRIMA COOPERATIVA LUZZATI
1903/06 Vittorio Mascanzoni (1855/1906) for a cooperative of workers employed in industries active in those years, between Via Prenestina and Via Casilina 
Two-story terraced houses looking on Via Luigi Pianciani and also on the parallel Via Nino Bixio 
They were a novelty in residential building constructions in Rome 
"The area assigned to each member being limited, we designed to put the stairs in the front, so to avoid hallways and create space for all the rooms. The stairs in the front moreover gave rise to the decoration of the fa├žades themselves by breaking the uniformity of the fine lines and distinguishing each group of four houses" (Vittorio Mascanzoni)
