Francisco SALAMONE – an architect in the PAMPAS

Architect Francisco Salamone (Leonforte, Sicily, Italy 1897–Buenos Aires, Argentina 1959) built more than 60 municipal buildings (cemetery, city hall, slaughter house) with Art Deco / Futurism elements in several rural communities in Buenos Aires Province. These buildings are the examples of first contemporary architecture in rural Argentina.
