Casa Galimberti

Casa Galimberti: a wonderful liberty style building , born as Art Nouveau in France, Modern Style in England, Jungenstile in Germany, the Liberty Style in Italy looked to nature as the source of every creative, vital and dynamic act, trying to reproduce its shapes and movements. Hence some of the typical elements of Italian Art Nouveau are: sinuous lines, floral and zoomorphic motifs, balconies with wrought iron or decorative concrete scrolls, facade decorations with ceramic tiles, combination of different architectural elements. Everything had to evoke that sense of nature, freshness, novelty, freedom that the first artists, led by Edmond Picard, wanted to convey.
Did the architect Giovanni Battista Bossi succeed in this aim with the construction of the Galimberti House inaugurated in Milan in 1905?
