Footnote

A scarce copy of what remains the most comprehensive book on Gio Ponti, written by his daughter. 'This is the first complete survey and thematic profile of one of the most accomplished and prolific Italian architects of the twentieth century. From the Richard-Ginori chinaware and the founding of Domus magazine in the 20s to the Pirelli tower erected in Milan in the 50s and the 'facade' architecture of the 70s, Gio Ponti has been a major force in the shaping of Italian architecture and design. Gio Ponti: The Complete Work presents a fully illustrated decade-by-decade account of Ponti's vast output in interior and industrial design... The entire photographic archive of Ponti's studio, together with his unpublished writings, were made available in the preparation of this book. Here revealed are many new photographs of his work and a selection of his writings. A biographical profile, bibliography, and chronologies of works, exhibitions and sales complete this stunning book.' (from the blurb).
