Giotto Stoppino was born in Vigevano, in the province of Milan, in 1926.
Following a period of work at the Studio Architetti Associati, in 1968 he opened his own practice focussing on the sectors of architecture, furniture and design.
He took part in numerous international exhibitions, among which the Triennale of Milan and the Moma in New York with Italy, the New Domestic Landscape.
He has been the chairman of ADI and of the ICSID International Congress. In his capacity as designer he also co-operated with major firms in the sector and was awarded prestigious prizes, among which two Golden Compasses, in 1979 and in 1991.
As a result of the lectures held at Palermos university, in 1994 Stoppino published the book From the nature of materials to design, an outline of his lectures illustrated with his own drawings.
