At Home In Italy: Under The Summer Sun

Italy’s sun-drenched landscape, rich history, and welcoming lifestyle attract visitors from all over the world. At Home in Italy showcases a sumptuous selection of the country’s most beautiful houses, described in great detail by the Editor of AD Italia, Nicoletta del Buono, and captured by the lens of renowned architecture photographer Massimo Listri.As del Buono’s vibrant text makes clear, as varied as traditional Italian approaches to design are—each unique to its region—they are nevertheless easily identifiable as Italian. And as the houses featured in this lusciously illustrated volume establish, the modern-day Italian genius for design has its roots firmly planted in Italy’s rich traditions, for Italians have long had a sure eye for color, proportion, light, and furniture placement.With over two hundred stunning color photographs of thirty houses, ranging from sweeping panoramas to close-ups of specific rooms, furniture, and design details, this irresistible volume highlights the merging of traditional settings and modern comforts that epitomizes Italian style. From the Tuscan home of Colombian artist Fernando Botero to the enchanting Baroque palazzo in Sicily that is now home to Milanese designer Luisa Beccaria, the images glow with a rich palette of colors and styles that evoke every mood, whether a sense of timeless simplicity or the delights of decorative excess. At Home in Italy has something to offer to every lover of Italy and interior design.Praise for At Home in Italy:"Italian Style—the perfect blend of light, proportion and color in Italian design comes together spectacularly in the book At Home in Italy: Under the Summer Sun. Nicoletta del Buono, Editor of AD Italia, along with photographer Massimo Listri brings to life the sun-drenched landscapes and lush traditional interiors of over 30 Italian homes." —Hampton Hostess blog"For all you Italophiles, there's a brand-new Vendome Press title out this Fall—At Home in Italy. This lushly illustrated book showcases the quintessential traditional Italian style in many different settings—country houses, ski chalets, seaside homes and castles." —Annechovie blog"A new volume debuting this week from The Vendome Press [that] captures the essence of Italy's most beautiful houses, showcasing an amazing collection documented by well-known architectural photographer Massimo Listri and described by Nicoletta del Buono, Editor of AD Italia. From Siena to Sicily, At Home in Italy, takes us on a tour behind the scenes, illustrating how these various indigenous architectural styles have all been updated for contemporary living." —Quintessence blog"This 250-page volume is devoted entirely to photos of homes in rural Italy. Slowly flipping through it on a Sunday afternoon—preferably with a deep dark shot of espresso or a tipple of grappa in hand—is like taking a leisurely stroll through one of the olive groves pictured so reverently between it's covers. It's a lovely mix of light and shade, color and neutral, old and even older." —The City Sage blog"A tour through Italy via 30 houses, this book is perfect for the Italophile on your list. The colors alone are enough to write home about." -Design*Sponge“At Home in Italy, by [the] editor of AD Italia, Nicoletta del Buono, has brilliant photographs of some of Italy's most beautiful homes, taken by Massimo Listri. Covering about thirty homes across various regions in rural Italy, the book is almost like a personal walk through the sun drenched patios, the inviting cool living rooms, and a visual feast of Italian rural design and decor tradition.” —An Indian Summer blog

Wonderful photographs and great articles. If you love Italy (or if you haven't been there, you will want to go), this is a great book.
