He built many buildings in Eritrea during Italian Colonial Rule. They included the Fiat Tagliero Building in Asmara, described as "probably the world's most beautiful petrol station, and also one of the world's supreme examples of Futurism". Modelled on airplane design, when it was opened in 1938 workers refused to remove the props for the building's ambitious 'wings' and it is claimed Pettazzi forced them to do so at gunpoint.
