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.
