AMARE GIO PONTI

Mar 2016

AMARE GIO PONTI

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.

Based on the search for historical material - iconographic sources such as the Ponti Archives and Teche Rai, and an interview with Gio Ponti in his studio in via Dezza, his architectural designs and customized furniture, with testimony from his heirs - as well as interviews with some of today’s prominent figures: Vittorio Gregotti, Fulvio Irace, Enzo Mari, Giovanna and Maria Grazia Mazzocchi, Sandro Mendini, Nanda Vigo, Bob Wilson. With an exclusive interview with the publisher Benedikt Taschen, a great Ponti fan and collector.

The film is curated by Francesca Molteni and produced by Muse, in partnership with the Salvatore Licitra/Gio Ponti Archives, promoted by Molteni&C, which has been producing remakes from the Ponti Collection since 2012, a project that has led to the rediscovery of certain items of furniture designed by the great maestro and never produced on an industrial scale.
