The exhibition presents Gio Ponti’s original drawings, with all his production notes, and with photographs of the company workshop where the architect worked together with the craftsman and workers, and there is a display of original ceramics from the time. The event also allows visitors, after about 60 years, to see a faithful reproduction of the original 27 maiolica tiles, together with 5 decorations that were never used for the Parco dei Principi. These have now been made for the first time by the master decorators of Ceramica Francesco De Maio, which in 1990 took over the former Ceramica D’Agostino, now Antiche Fornaci D’Agostino.
