The Rome Termini central train station building––inaugurated in 1950––is characterized by the extremely long, modernist façade in travertine marble, and by the gravity-defying double curve of the concrete cantilever roof. The anodized aluminium friezes that decorate it are by Hungarian artist Amerigo Tot, and they represent the dynamics in sound and speed of a train.
