TUTTO GIO PONTI

The MAD exhibition TUTTO PONTI—the first French retrospective of Gio Ponti’s œuvre—lives up to its name by including over 400 examples of the seminal designer’s work in architecture, furniture, and interior design.

In addition, the show looks at Ponti’s writing and publishing projects for Domus, where he was editor-in-chief from 1928 to 1941 and 1948 to 1979.

Ponti—whose career spanned nearly six decades—is strongly identified with the city of Milan, and many of the show’s pieces have never been seen outside of Italy.
