The Fontana Arte was born at the beginning of the thirties of the collaboration between Gio Ponti, already successful architect and creator of the magazine "Domus", and Luigi Fontana, founder of the parent company, specializing in the marketing and processing of glass in sheets . Thus began a very specific period in the history of Fontana Arte, which continued with Peter Church and again with Max Enlarge until the early seventies: years were exciting, and Art Fountain became a unique example of a cutting-edge company, with very skilled workers and aware of the leading role that their firm covering. They were created for various items, often of drawing the most famous artists, such as Saul Steinberg or Duilio Barnabé: furniture, dishes, boxes, picture frames, mirrors, the famous sculptures and more, in addition to the windows. But it was especially in luminaires that Fontana Arte proved extraordinarily advanced, overcoming modernity, functionality and purity of lines, what it had produced in that area.
