Giotto was born in the provence of Milan in 1926 and passed away in 2011. His career started in 1968 in the Studio Architetti Associati. But really took off when he started his own firm shortly after. His wide variety of work spread from urban planning to architecture to furniture and design.
Giotto was often celebrated for his achievements with awards and prestigious prizes (twice the Golden Compass 1979 and 1989, etc.).
And since 1970 to the present, the Museum of Modern Art in New York displays the lamp 537 from Arteluce in the permanent collection, while the furniture from the ’81 Sheraton is part of the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
As a result of the lectures held at Palermos university, in 1994 Stoppino published the book From the nature of materials to design, an outline of his lectures illustrated with his own drawings.
