On Thursday, March 16, 2023, the Amore event was held in Bottega Ghianda's Milan showroom.
On the occasion of the centenary of Pino Tovaglia's birth, Bottega Ghianda wanted to commemorate the work and research carried out by the great Italian graphic designer, creating for the first time a work in solid maple with letters 98 cm high.
A master of decomposition, sign, form, and figure, Pino Tovaglia discovered the reading of the spaces between letters, in words, and within the letters themselves. For the three-dimensional development of his studies, he relied on Bottega Ghianda, an excellence of Italian woodworking the paid tribute to him on this occasion.
During the event it was possible to see the craftsmen at work, historical documents regarding the Codice Tondo, visual research and the genesis of the word AMORE.
