Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939, Gaetano Pesce studied architecture at the University of Venice and was a part of Gruppo N, which was an artist collective, modeled after the Bauhaus. Besides teaching for 28 years, Pesce has been working toward breaking the boundaries between art, design and industry. His work is now featured in over 30 permanent museum collections including the M oMa of New York and San Francisco, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Vitra Museum in Germany. To this day Pesce exhibits his art in galleries throughout the world.
