Gio Ponti letter to Pierluigi Nervi

Dated December 1960. Dear Nervi, everything in your pavilion is aesthetically coherent and even the seam of glass at the top between element and element is a delight of purity. What you need to avoid in the first appearance of your work is that row of large hanging lamps, which clash so damn much. Since I don't use them at all, please remove them, for the purity of your creation; then if it will be necessary, we will put them back. I embrace you with affection.
