“This book is an act of gratitude from a student towards a teacher. 
It is also an invitation that inspire others to give their contribution to the reconstruction of the history 
of a remarkable experience, relevant from both a human and professional point of view,” 
writes Marina Cinieri in the introduction,”Ester Manitto organises and transcribes a range of materials including notes and loose texts, and thus she allows us to visit A G Fronzoni’s school-workshop, founded in Milan in 1982 and open until 2001.” 
A G Fronzoni was a graphic and product designer and an architect, whose work had a great influence on Italian and European designers. 
The book consists of two parts. The first one includes a dialogue between the author and the design historian Gabriele Oropallo. 
It also features a text by Enrico D. Bona, who writes about his recollections of the time when Fronzoni was responsible for the layout of the Casabella magazine. 
The second part is a map of the key terms around which the ideas of the Tuscan designer were organised; this section is a result of an accurate selection of the notes taken by Ester Manitto while attending the school-workshop and represent an important document of the intellectual milieu in which Fronzoni’s work emerged.
