Overview

The land of lust and legend nestling in the gentle hills and brushed with the hazy sfumato of the air, the homes of Tuscany have long been the objects of lust and legend. This book affords a privileged glimpse of Tuscan houses and interiors. Leading lights of the international arts and fashion scenes open their doors and bid us enter. The range extends from the simple casa colonia, the typical farmhouse of Chianti, via the majestic palazzo of the Puccis and the magnificent villa of the Siemens family to a house designed by Ettore Sottsass.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With Florence as its center, the Tuscan region of Italy has become a symbol of romantic, rural elegance, used as a backdrop for many period movies as well as for commercials. This latest installment in the "Interiors" series (e.g., New York Interiors, LJ 9/15/97) shows domestic interiors of the region, primarily of villas but also of apartments and farmhouses. The styles shown in the beautifully photographed color photos include modern, classical, and rustic, reflecting the personalities of the inhabitants. The text is in English, French, and German. Interior design collections as well as public libraries where there is an interest in Tuscany will consider this a worthy purchase.
