A new outlook on the work of the great Italian architect Gió Ponti. A book focusing on three of the hotels he designed (in terms of structure, furnishing, design accessories, etc.) in Naples, Sorrento and Rome.

A controversial figure who was often misunderstood, Gió Ponti was one of the greatest exponents of Italian architecture of the 20th century. This book examines his meeting with a brilliant entrepreneur, Roberto Fernandes. A professional exchange which, through the building of three hotels, in Naples, Sorrento and Rome, marked an important moment in the architecture of the sector and in the design of the '50s and `60s as a whole.

This brief account, richly illustrated with hitherto unpublished documents, designs and photographs, in which architecture and art come together, looks at Ponti's thinking and the fact that he regarded the man who commissioned his works as one of the creators of each project. In addition to the main text, the book contains introductions by Lisa Ponti and Marco Romanelli.
