Born in Sondrio, Italy in 1921, Antonia Campi is a renowned ceramicist, jewelry, metal and glass designer who was awarded a Compasso D'Oro in 2011 for a lifetime of achievement in design. While she produced some beautiful sculpture and art, her contributions to industrial design are also significant.
