The monograph dedicated to Lisa Ponti (1922–2019), daughter of the famous architect and designer Gio Ponti, tells the story of a figure who remained unexplored at great length. Through a wide selection of drawings and writings, along with her conversations with artists, gallery owners and designers – published over the course of half a century in the magazines "Domus" and "Stile" – a personality constantly involved with the leading names of the Italian and international art scene is explored. For Ponti, drawing represents an intimate dimension, one in which to carve out a space for herself. Her writings, on the other hand, highlight a personal view of the world, tracing Lisa Ponti’s path throughout the history of twentieth-century culture.
Published with MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma on the occasion of the exhibition Il disegno di una mostra, the volume also features a 2012 conversation between Lisa Ponti and Luca Lo Pinto, curator of the exhibition and editor of the volume, as well as an extended biography by Fabio Marino and an introductory text by Salvatore Licitra. An extended bibliography also documents Lisa Ponti’s intense publishing activity.
The publication was made possible thanks to the support of the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of culture as part of the Italian Council programme (2021).
