Inside Milan ventures behind closed doors in this unique cultural capital that is renowned as a world leader in fashion, design, art, and industry. In this beautifully photographed new book, icons such as Veronica and Jacopo Etro, Martina Mondadori, JJ Martin, and Barnaba Fornasetti reveal why they call this notoriously elusive city home. From sophisticated clean lines and muted tones to rooms bursting with art and color, the palazzos and apartments showcased in this stunning volume uncover the creative heart of this vibrant and cosmopolitan metropolis. Nicolò Castellini Baldissera’s carefully curated collection of interiors features the homes of an array of leading creatives of Milan society, including—in addition to the aforementioned—artist Lola Schnabel, designers Hannes Peer, Emiliano Salci, and Osanna Visconti, and fashion designer Luisa Beccaria, among others. With a cloth binding featuring an original Fornasetti drawing, gilded embossed type and masterful photographs by Guido Taroni, Inside Milan provides rare insights into the Milanese lifestyle.
