Gio Ponti: Valmartello al Paradiso del Cevedale. Geschichte eines Hotels in den Alpen (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Unter dem faschistischen Regime wurde im Sudtiroler Martelltal 1937 das vom Architekten Gio Ponti geplante Hotel Paradiso eroeffnet. Das heute verlassene, ehemalige Sporthotel, ein langgestreckter, geschwungener Solitar, der einst die Qualitaten eines Luxushotels mit denen einer Schutzhutte zu kombinieren vermochte, wurde als Gesamtkunstwerk geplant. Eine Besonderheit sind Gio Pontis Studien zum eigenwilligen und bis ins Detail entworfenen Farbkonzept, das auf vier Grundfarben basierend fur die Wande und Decken der Raume verwendet wurde. Mangelnde Wartung und Vandalismus haben dem Hotel seit der Schliessung 1946 arg zugesetzt. Vor dem Hintergrund der Wurdigung der Anlage als Gesamtwerk und einer sorgfaltigen Bestandsaufnahme ist es moeglich, den Entwurfsprozess von den ersten Skizzen bis zur Ausfuhrung zu verfolgen.
