Ebook Review:

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, and light. This luscious volume explores the many regions of Italy, from Tuscany to Sicily to Lake Garda to Umbria, each with their own design traditions, reflecting a wide variety in history, geography, and people. 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, and light. This luscious volume explores the many regions of Italy, from Tuscany to Sicily to Lake Garda to Umbria, each with their own design traditions, reflecting a wide variety in history, geography, and people. The thick walls of southern Italy and Sicily provide protection against the "mezzogiorno"'s brutal summer heat, while the cozy wooden mountain chalets of Cortina d'Ampezzo preserve as much warmth as possible. As Nicoletta del Buono's vibrant text makes clear, each approach to design is unique to its region, but nevertheless identifiable as trademark Italian. With over 300 color photographs of 30 intriguing houses, ranging from Tuscan villas to the characteristic cone-roofed houses of Trulli, "At Home in Italy" explores a rich interplay between distinctive style and tradition.
