with the exhibition “Gio Ponti: L’Infinito Blu”

 

A world premiere for Ceramica Francesco De Maio, which presented the first book dedicated to

the blue and white majolica tiles design by Gio Ponti

 

Gio Ponti's white and blue majolica at the center of a book and an exhibition "Gio Ponti: The Blue Infinity" from 9 February to 12 March 2017 on display in the Quadreria de La Triennale in Milan. A world premiere dedicated to the colors of the sea and the sky of Sorrento designed by the famous Italian architect, designer and essayist of the 9th century for the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento.

For the first time ever, in a single volume of Ceramica Francesco De Maio, published by Edizioni Paguro, the three architects of Blu Ponti: the heirs of Ponti, Ceramica D'Agostino (today Antiche Fornaci D'Agostino, a company taken over by Ceramica Francesco De Maio in 1990) and the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento. With the testimonies of Aldo Colonetti, Gianni De Maio, Gillo Dorfles, Patrizia Famiglietti, Fulvio Irace, Salvatore Licitra, Lisa Licitra Ponti, Fabrizio Mautone, to reconstruct an exemplary history, demonstrating that it is possible to design the "new", when the foundations on which we design, belong to "giants" like Gio Ponti, whose modernity is irreplaceable, speaking of architecture and design.

 

The frame of the exhibition was La Triennale di Milano, which invited Ceramica Francesco De Maio to its prestigious spaces in the Quadreria from 9 February to 12 March 2017.

 

Protagonists of the book and of the exhibition, curated by Aldo Colonetti and Patrizia Famiglietti with the collaboration of Salvatore Licitra, are the unpublished photographs that portray Gio Ponti as a sort of "Fellini-like" director while he coordinates the production phases in the factory, the sketches he traced quickly to grasp his fleeting creativity, the hand-drawn tables with the shapes of the decorations, the watercolors made for the first colors and the majolica that made what he created real.

 

On display there are also the 33 "Blu Ponti" majolica tiles by Ceramica Francesco De Maio in Salerno (Italy), faithful reproductions not only of the 27 majolica tiles used for the Parco dei Principi in Sorrento, but also of the unpublished 5 unused decorations that have remained until today. drawings only. And the creation of a decoration not included among the 32 tables designed by Gio Ponti, but found in the screens of Ceramica D'Agostino, well related to the other white and blue patterns and identifiable among the designer's pen sketches.
