Milan Design Week 2023
“Architecture is an interpretation of life”, wrote Gio Ponti. “Amare Gio Ponti”, the first documentary about his work, previewed at the 2015 Milano Design Film Festival, is dedicated to the great 20th century maestro.
A portrait of the man and the architect, aspiring painter, promotor ante litteram of Italian design who, in a career spanning more than fifty years, experimented with everything – arts, crafts, objects, architecture and materials.
The film tries to explain the reasons for the change in fortune that has recently seen Ponti rediscovered and reproposed, as a model of the European and international architect.
