From the spoon to the town: on the footsteps of Gio Ponti
Architect and designer Gio Ponti incarnates perfectly the approach of Milanese architects as defined by Rogers: from the spoon to the town.
In Milan his creativity is scattered everywhere, from designers shops to magnificent buildings. Our expert will take you through the work of this eclectic artist discovering masterpieces in designers shop such as Richard Ginori, where you can admire his ceramic collection, to Artemide, where he worked, and then to the Pirelli Building, also known as the Pirellone. See how knowledge of materials and ability to introduce technical innovations can be applied with the same passion both to his “superleggera” chair and the Torre Branca, in Parco Sempione. Visit the church of St. Francesco d’Assisi al Fopponino, his legacy to the city, and several of his buildings in via de Togni.
