Description

This is a very interesting cross-section of a proposed underground train system for the Italian city of Genoa. The project was first conceived in 1911, though this drawing is a revamped and modernized 1929 presentation of the same: cars and vehicles, as well as the characters populating the scene, had to be updated with the design and fashion improvements that had occurred in the meantime.
Drawn by Genoese architect and engineer Renzo Picasso for his hometown, it reflects his thorough knowledge of American public transport solutions. The proposal is obviously inspired by New York with the trains being both local and express.

ON A CURIOUS NOTE: Cinemas and theatres on this popular Genoese main street did really have the underground foyers, halls, and lobbies that Renzo Picasso integrated into his plans: the idea was to provide direct access to and from the train platforms to the covered leisure areas.
