Summary

Antiques in Italian Interiors, Volume II presents a collection of extravagant Italian interiors that house marvelous collections of artwork and antiques. Following the success of the previous volume in the series (published by Verba Volant in 2005), this new book will open the doors to more private residences belonging to merchant princes, collectors, and royalty. The fifteen interiors selected by art historian Roberto Valeriani and architectural photographer Mario Ciampi are located throughout the Italian peninsula. In the capital city the Galleria Colonna, with its opulent halls and parlors, contains a celebrated art collection that belongs to a prestigious Roman family. Embellished with frescos dating back to the seventeenth century, the princely baroque spaces boast masterpieces from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. The book passes from one noted locale to another, from the affluence of the papal Rome to the opulence of Catania where Palazzo Biscari, the oldest baroque palace in Sicily, was the one of the settings for Goethe's Italian Journey . The rich style and ambience of the collection of interiors in this volume demonstrates the full power of the elegance that can only be achieved by arranging precious artwork and antiques in stunning spaces with classic Italian style.
