Four meetings to know Ponti’s multi-faceted activities, which include architecture, design, teaching, publishing, decoration, and scenography.
The programme intends to flank the exhibition in introducing and bringing the audience closer to Ponti’s multi-faceted activities: architecture and design, teaching and publishing, decoration and scenography; a legacy that has no equal in terms of versatility, flair, and commitment. A five-lesson long path designed to outline the professional profile of a person who actively participated in the re-birth of post-war Italian design.
Gio Ponti and the city
with Giorgio Ciucci
Theories or urban plans do not filter Ponti’s relationship with the city. More simply, since the 1930s, he observes the city, in particular, Milan, through its building components. On the one hand, the relationship between the houses (the “interclassist” domus, the same title given to the magazine founded in 1928) and the street; on the other, the buildings, in the context of massive urban spaces such as the Montecatini and Ferrania buildings or the residential building in S. Babila. The synthesis point between 1927 and 1940 was the design for a large residential area, “Spina Verde” at Scalo Sempione, which was proposed again after the war as “Il Fiume Verde”.
Giorgio Ciucci, former Secretary-General of the National Academy of San Luca, has published books and edited volumes on the architecture and city of Rome from the fifteenth to the twentieth century and on Italian, European, and American architecture of the twentieth century.
