(Milan, 1927 - 1999)
An ambitious architect and designer, Franco Bettonica began his career while still at university. His creative and innovative spirit led him to establish, together with Mario Melocchi, the lighting company Cini & Nils. The same experimental approach can be seen in the pieces designed for the Poltronova company in his early years of activity. For Poltronova, he designed modernist and elegant furniture in search of a new way of living.
