Leone Lodi (1900– 1974) was a Lombardy artist who began as a stonecutter. He trained in evening classes at the Brera Academy and the Scuola Superiore di Arte Applicata. His first works date back to the beginning of the 1920s. Over the following decade he worked with important rationalist architects: Giuseppe Pagano, Agnoldomenico Pica, Giulio Minoletti and Eugenio Faludi (author of the huge sets used for the inauguration of the factory). In Viale Villa in Torviscosa, in front of the old entrance to the swimming pools, are another for works by Lodi.
