Visionary and breathtaking: this is the project of a futuristic Genoa conceived in the middle of the Great War, between old-fashion skyscrapers worthy of an East-Coast metropolis and flying cars swarming in the air over the Carignano seascape. Between belle époque and science fiction, Picasso tells us about a missed dream.
