"An exclusive look at a new book on Renzo Mongiardino reveals rare images of the Italian designer’s most iconic interiors"
—Wall Street Journal Magazine
"He was the master of illusion, a man entrusted by global arbiters of taste including Marella Agnelli, Jil Sanders, Lee Radziwill, and Elsa Peretti to transform their homes. For many, the Genoa-born Renzo Mongiardino was the artist who elevated interior design into an art form worthy of longevity. The book is filled with envy-inducing photographs by Guido Taroni making it hard not to sigh and declare: 'To have had those houses, those budgets, and Mongiardino.' "
"Martina Mondadori Sartogo, the editor of the twice-yearly Cabana magazine, grew up in interiors designed by Mongiardino, thus, it is only apropos that she authors a book on the design legend. Renzo Mongiardino: A Painterly Vision shows the designer's work in all its glory — from expansive room shots to minute decorative details — accompanied by essays from the likes of Radziwill and Elsa Peretti."
"With this new book by Rizzoli, you can take a last look into the beautiful world Renzo Mongiardino created, and left for all to be inspired by. A humble offering to one of the most talented creators of ambiance who ever lived."
