In contrast to the minimalism of contemporary design, a reinterpretation of past styles has never ceased to be the language with which interior design expresses the taste and culture of living.
Massimo Listri, one of the world"s leading photographers, has been making memorable contributions to the most important international interior-design magazines for the past thirty years. He has visited the most beautiful old-style houses, and has created an extraordinary and unparalleled collection of photographs of their interiors.
The book is divided into areas (libraries, drawing rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and so on), making it a priceless source of ideas and solutions for interior designers and for all those who love traditional homes. A museum in itself, it gratifies the eye with the art, culture and history of beautiful houses, while celebrating the talent of its author. <<176 colour illustrations
