This text originates from the sense of wonder and involvement felt in reading the correspondence between the Milanese architect and designer Gio Ponti and Joseph 'Josef' H. Singer of M. Singer & Sons, a furniture manufacturer of New York, held by the Ponti Archive in Milan. An exchange which, between letters, drawings and telegrams not only testifies the working and personal relationship between the two figures, but which also becomes an interesting tool to frame some of the moments, episodes and figures that have marked, at least in part, the links between Ponti and the United States. In this way, this text aims to contribute to the positioning of his activity within the broader and more complex panorama of the exchange of knowledge, models, ideas, techniques, and design practices between Italy and North America in the post-war period.
