Piero Portaluppi

Edited by with text Piero Maranghi. Photographs by Ciro Frank Schiappa. Interview with Piero Castellini by Luca Guadagnino.

Piero Portaluppi

A sumptuous, exhaustive and epic treatment of the Italian architect’s life and work—from modernist pavilions to postwar collaborations with Gio Ponti

Celebrated in the 1930s, forgotten during the postwar period and now rediscovered, Piero Portaluppi (1888–1967) was a leading figure of 20th-century Italian architecture. Portaluppi designed the Italian Pavilion for the Universal Exposition in Barcelona in 1929; created numerous industrial buildings; was choice designer of residences for Milanese high society; and between 1956 and 1962 collaborated on architectural projects with Gio Ponti.
Produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Piero Portaluppi, this exhaustive monograph comprises an extensive photo album featuring new color images of Portaluppi’s projects taken by the renowned photographer Ciro Frank Schiappa; three previously unpublished essays, illustrated with archival photos by Antonio Paoletti; documentation of architectural models; and items documenting his personal interests (cartoons, diagrams, sundials, postcards, newspaper cuttings). The volume also features an interview with Portaluppi’s nephew, the architect Piero Castellini (conducted by film director Luca Guadagnino), a biography, a list of works and a bibliography.
