Fontana Arte Book

About

Author Franco Deboni, foreword by Bernd Goeckler 
Allemandi & C. English edition, available exclusively through Bernd Goeckler antiques, starting March 7th. Franco Deboni is the most renowned author and expert on 20th century Italian glass in the world. Fontana Arte is the most important and innovative Italian glass designer and maker of the 20th century. It is not surprising that Fontana Arte has chosen Franco Deboni to document the compelling story of its founding by Italian artist and entrepreneur Luigi Fontana and the icon of 20th century Italian design, Gio Ponti, whose visionary designs transformed Italian glass in the early 1930s into lighting systems, furniture and accessories incorporating strikingly modern design with traditional Italian glass blowing craftsmanship which began Fontana Arte's journey to the unchallenged position of prestige and leadership that it holds today. This insightful journey through time with Gio Ponti, Pietro Chiesa and Max Ingrand is brought to vivid life with 562 illustrations in 336 pages to fulfill every expectation the reader might have.
