CO.AS.IT. proudly presents Carlo Catani: Visionary, Creator, Genius, an enlightening bi-lingual exhibition showcasing the life and significant achievements of Victoria’s foremost Italian-born civil engineer, and a key figure in the development of the State of Victoria from 1876 to 1917.

This special exhibition commemorates the 100 year anniversary of Catani’s passing by exploring his wide-ranging accomplishments through unique images and objects that showcase his talent, dedication and enduring legacy to the State of Victoria. His many notable projects include the majestic Alexandra Avenue and Gardens in the heart of the city of Melbourne, the development of the European style St Kilda foreshore and the creation of scenic mountain roads which enabled the establishment of popular Victorian alpine resorts such as that at Mount Buffalo.

“Here is a most unique personality whom the State will remember, because each year as it passes will help to perfect his artistic work”. Ovens and Murray Advertiser, 7th April 1915.
