A prolific creator, Gio Ponti (1891-79) not only played a key part in Italian architecture, but also opened up the way for a new art de vivre. This book covers the whole of his long career, from the 1920s to the late 1970s, both in Italy and abroad. It looks at the various fields in which he exercised his talent; private, public and religious commissions, furniture, lighting, ceramics, glass, silverware and textiles, as well as the central role he had in transmitting new ideas through the reviews Domus and Lo Stile. This work, an important reference book on Gio Ponti, pays tribute to the creative universe of this legendary figure on the modern art scene.

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
