Giuseppe Pagano (1896-1945) was an Croatian-Italian architect who designed many industrial buildings and furnishings. Initially, Giuseppe designed within the political framework of fascism with futuristic and rationalist designs. Later, he started to criticize the bombastic architecture of the regime and for that reason was imprisoned in a concentration camp where he died from pneumonia.
