Signature Houses: Private Homes by Great Italian Designers


This inspiring volume takes readers on a tour of luxurious interiors that showcase the best of Italian design and architecture.

As part of the series dedicated to “Made in Italy” architecture and design (Carlo Scarpa, Piero Portaluppi), this latest book features a stunning collection of interiors by acclaimed Italian designers and architects from the second half of the twentieth century. Each of these exquisite spaces perfectly embodies the designer’s unique creative spirit, encapsulating both the essence of the designer’s personal style and taste with the trends of the era.

The ten projects, all specially photographed for the book, include such names in Italian architecture and design as: Carlo Mollino, Carlo Scarpa, Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti, Osvaldo Borsani, Piero and Barnaba Fornasetti, among others. Ranging from residential to office spaces, each of these unique spaces has remained largely unchanged, and decades later they still speak for those who conceived of and inhabited them: Casa Fornasetti provides a unique testimony to the world of Piero Fornasetti, and now that of his son, Barnaba, who carries on his work and brand with strength and innovation; Casa Mollino represents the peak of architect Carlo Mollino’s ideas, beautifully serving as his aesthetic and conceptual legacy; and the vibrant, ironic, colorful Casa Quarestani perfectly sums up the poetic vision of Ettore Sottsass.
