About this title


Artists have always been attracted to Tuscany, seduced by its outstanding beauty, mild climate, and rich cultural history. ""Tuscany Artists Homes"" presents the interiors of homes owned by contemporary artists living in Tuscany, including Dario Bartolini, Pietro Cascella, Lietta Cavalli, Sandro Chia, Gigi Guadagnucci, Isanna Generali, Joseph Kosuth, Massimo Lippi, Igor Mitoraj, and Daniel Spoerri.Shown are a variety of housing types, from villas and country homes to refurbished industrial buildings and castles, setting the stage for fascinating juxtapositions of architecture and design, and demonstrating differing approaches to restoration, remodeling, and decoration. Mariella Sgaravatti's text, enriched by comments from the artists themselves, sheds light on how each interior has been transformed to reflect the personal vision of the owners. ""Tuscany Artists Homes"" is a rewarding photographic tour for those seeking original and unusual ideas for their own home and for those who would like to take a peek at some of the most intriguing dream homes and gardens hidden away in Tuscany.

About the Author:

Mario Ciampi has been an architectural photographer for more than 25 years, and his work has appeared in numerous magazines worldwide, most notably Casa Vogue and Architectural Digest. Mariella Sgaravatti was born in Padua, Italy, and studied architecture in Florence where she graduated with a specialization in landscape architecture. She has done freelance work designing gardens, and she is currently active in gardening congresses and conventions. Her published works include "Le passiflore" and "Le clematidi," both published by Calderini in Italy, and "Tuscany Artists' Gardens" and "Tuscany Artists' Homes" both published by Verba Volant.
