Gottardo Gussoni ( Torino 1869- Villastellone 1951 )

An unbelievable eclectic author, collaborator of the major studios of  architects working in Turin at the beginning of the century,  he realized also numerous projects. Among the most ambitious ones, we find the plants for the thalassotherapy at Alassio.  He is known for his very recognizable taste for “ heavy” architectonic decoration, a decoration that seems winding upon itself.
