Gianluigi Gho (1915-1998), known as Gigi, was an Italian engineer and architect. Active after World War II, he designed and built numerous residential, commercial and industrial buildings. His works are cited in the main studies dedicated to rationalism and modern architecture in Milan during the years of reconstruction.

He has worked with some of the most important figures in Italian design culture such as Aldo Favini, Giulio Minoletti and Gio Ponti, with whom he has had a long and sincere friendship. He has collaborated with various artists, including Lucio Fontana and Fausto Melotti.His training was thoroughly modern, and Gho represents a figure of a “cultured professional” through whom we can reread many aspects of the architect’s profession in the “laboratory of modernity” that was Milan in the years of post-war reconstruction.

This exhibition constitutes a first moment of critical analysis of the figure of Gigi Gho through the display of a selection of design documents that illustrate a large part of his professional parabola.
