Biography

Oscar Prati was an architect from Modena, who worked in the Brescia area in the 1930s to 1950s. There, he was commissioned to design a new urban plan for the town, whose most important outcome was the creation of the Piazza Vittoria. His son Giuliano was inspired by his designs and became a well-known painter. During the Fascist era in Italy, Prati was one of the preferred architects of the Mussolini regime. Already Oscar’s father Arturo (1871-1944) was an architect and worked as teacher of ornate design and architecture at the University of Modena from 1910 to 1927.

Oscar Prati’s entry was his contribution for a national competition organized in January 1926 by an Italian magazine for the project of a vast sports complex at Acqua Acetosa in Roma, called Terme Littorie. The first prize went to the Venetian architect [Duilio Torres], who also submitted his design in Amsterdam 1928, and the second to Oscar Prati. The project, however, was never realized.
