1930s Italian modernism...

Florence Santa Maria Novella (usually abbreviated to Firenze SMN) is the main station in Florence, named after the little church nearby.  There's been a station here since 1848, but the current station was built 1932-1934, a classic example of Italian modernism.  For more about the station's history see Wikipedia entry for Florence SMNA few trains leave from Florence Campo di Marte station rather than SMN, notably to Verona, for information see here.
