Abstract

The professional carrier of Sebastiano Bultrini confirms the specific role that an engineer assumed in town planning and construction during the difficult years starting from the financial crisis of late 1880 up to the 1930s. Bultrini, born in Villa Romana of Carsoli (AQ), obtained his engineering degree at the Royal University Roman in 1892 and was already employed in early 1900 between Abruzzo and Lazio in the realization of infrastructures aimed at modernizing that territory (e.g. roads, bridges, aqueducts, schools etc.). His forty years of professional life is marked on one side by World War I, the Fucino earthquake (1915) and the rise of Fascism, on the other, by reconstruction of Marsica and the revival of housing in Rome during 1920-30. His studio was in via Urbana at Rome (at least from 1914) where he worked successfully in particular for private clients in housing, ranging from the new peripheral suburbs, to renovation or superelevation in historical areas up to the challenging projects for the Cooperativa Il Villaggio dei Giornalisti at Aventino, via Spallanzani e via Scialoja.He was one of the main figures for post-earthquake reconstruction starting with the Plan for Avezzano and varies civic and religious building in that town and other Marsican centres. During the Fascism regime he was also involved in the realization of Casa del Balilla and of the Complesso Nautico at Tagliacozzo, in collaboration with the architect Enrico Del Debbio. In addition Bultrini elaborated the Tagliacozzo urban plan adopted in 1933 after a less fortunate participation in that of Pescara.
