"For a certain kind of lover of houses and decoration, little is more exciting than happening upon a room that feels entirely surprising and idiosyncratic. The longtime design writer (and T contributing editor) Marella Caracciolo Chia and the esteemed interiors photographer Oberto Gili have collected 41 such places across Italy in their new book."
—New York Times T Magazine
"Perhaps nowhere is design—in all its diverse glory, from studied minimalism to exuberant maximalism—more celebrated than in Italy. Here, photographer and longtime AD collaborator Oberto Gili takes us on a tour of some of the country’s chicest residences, from rural estates in Tuscany to an 18th-century palace in Puglia to Milanese apartments. Inspiration abounds."

"What drew Gili and writer Marella Caracciolo Chia to this project was the degree of authenticity so often found inside Italian houses—eclecticism reigns supreme and history is never forgotten. Above, take a peek inside these stunning private homes. Be it in a city palazzo or country farmhouse, the results are bellissimi."

"One of the top 20 books in its category for 2016"
"Beginning back in 1993, photographer Oberto Gili and writer Marella Caracciolo Chia embarked on an epic, two-decade-long journey through Italy, from the northwest region all the way down to the country's tip. "'We discovered many beautiful interiors, but what stayed with us were the ones belonging to highly creative individuals,' Caracciolo Chia writes in their new book Domus (Rizzoli, $65), a tour of the very best homes they came across. Of course, Italy is known for its beautiful things (homes and otherwise), but in modern times Gili and Caracciolo Chia had to look a little harder to uncover them. 'Everybody is copying what is trendy, fashionable, and cool—far too often disregarding their roots, culture, and history. Thankfully, there still exists a strong minority who beautifully manage to avoid falling in with the flock,' writes Gili in the forward. 'They live with tremendous authenticity and creativity by embracing their history and cultivating their own culture that reflects their personalities.'"
"From rural estates in Tuscany to an eighteenth-century palace in Puglia, this gorgeous new coffee table book give readers a glimpse into Italy's most stunning homes."
"...a visual feast of Italy's greatest rooms."
