Gio Ponti (1891-1979) is one of the protagonists of Italian and international architecture of the twentieth century. Among his best-known architecture is reminiscent of the School of Mathematics of Rome (1934), the Montecatini buildings in Milan (1936 and 1951), the Liviano of Padua (1937), the Planchart villa of Caracas (1955), the Pirelli Tower Milan (1956), the Ministries of Islamabad in Pakistan (1964) and the Cathedral of Taranto (1970). Its countless design projects, among them: the coffee machine Pavoni of 1948, health care equipment for Ideal 1953 Standard, the Superleggera chair 1957, the slightly seat armchair 1971. He directs the magazine DOMUS from 1928 to 1941 and from 1948 until the end of his life. From 1941 to 1947 he was director of the magazine Style. With these directions and investments to the organization of the various editions of the Triennial of Monza and Milan, Ponti contributed authoritatively to the promotion of the decorative arts and all refinement of taste of several generations of Italians. In Romagna, Bridges is present since the early thirties but most significant are its relations after World War II with the Cooperativa Ceramica di Imola, with Pietro Melandri and Henry and Gaetano Dal Monte in Faenza. Planning and promoting industry and ceramic art or that of papier mache, Bridges has maintained high attentions towards ancient techniques including them, however, in modern society live. The episodes of architectural Garzanti Foundation of Forli and the Municipality of Cesenatico crown an almost privileged relationship despite internal complexity and versatility of his work.
