The artist from La Spezia

Gaetano Pesce, the architect and designer, was born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939, educated at the Venice Institute of Industrial Design. During his career of four decades he has become prominent in several fields as – architecture, interior, industrial and exhibition design, urban planning, graphics and film.

1gaetano_pesce_portraitDuring his early years, Pesce was introduced to Cesare Cassina, who took interest in his work. Cassina gave Pesce a monthly salary with which he researched materials and come up with prototypes. Over the years, their relationship deepened, as Pesce quotes: “Cassina became a kind of father to me.” Cassina helped Pesce understand that contemporary creativity was associated with the new reality of our times and not romantic ideal of art, but rather industrial production.
