Gio Ponti Gio Ponti a Sorrento: le superfici, il colore

1st april 2006 - 30th april 2006

The exhibition introduces a work of Gio Ponti of 1960: the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento.
Gio Ponti has been engaged on the topic of the furnishings of hotel in a recurrent way in his long career (from the hotel in Val Martello in ‘35, to the propose of a hotel room to the IX Triennale of Milan in ‘51, to the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento and then in Rome, from the interiors of the Hotel Royal in Naples to Pakistan House Hotel in Islamabad) maybe also because it is adapted very well to his way of projecting, that loves to proceed from who lives, who watches, who sits, who passes, who moves himself in the architecture and who confronted himself with spaces and furniture.
What therefore better than a hotel to project a combination essentially adapted to accommodate, and of a hotel host, to imagine the essential necessities.
In the closed equilibrium of these two poles, Gio Ponti has known to design sober and very elegant furniture, vibrating walls in the light of the ceramics, colours that move from pavement in pavement to end on the furnishings, marbles that changed in the perspectives of the stairs, and then lamps, handles, fabrics, stools, tables, chairs.
