Italians and Design Film Series: “Amare Gio Ponti”

Films, Visual Arts

In conjunction with the exhibition “Modern Living: Giò Ponti and the 20th-Century Aesthetics of Design.” Join the Georgia Museum of Art for films discussed by scholars, filmmakers and students. Each film will include a 15-minute introduction by a guest speaker and short conversations about the film following the screening. "Amare Gio Ponti" presents a picture of the man, the architect, aspiring painter and Italian designer who, over 50 years, tried it all with untiring energy — from the design of a door handle to the formulation of a town plan. (2015, NR. 34 min.) Films are sponsored by the UGA Parents Leadership Council.
