Venice’s 13th International Architectural Exhibition

From Monday to Friday, 10:00am to 6:00 pm
Palazzo Corner Spinelli
San Marco 3877
Venice’s 13th International Architectural Exhibition, which occurs between 27th August until 28th September, is in its 13th edition and already is being the subject of the moment: Molteni&C and Rubelli will be paying homage to Gio Ponti with the “Vivere alla Ponti” exhibition, set up in Palazzo Corner Spinelli.
Molteni&C is the most expected intervener. Also desirable is the limited edition of an armchair designed by Gio Ponti for his via Dezza home in Milan.
The chair is part of the Molteni&C collection, produced thanks to an exclusive agreement with the Ponti heirs and with the artistic management of Cerri&Associati. Furniture designed by Ponti between 1935 (chair for the first Palazzo Montecatini) is included in the collection, as also as productions made in fifties (bookcase, chest of drawers, small table, frames and rug for Casa Ponti in via Dezza in Milan, 1956-57).
