Casa Italiana profiles more than twenty-eight of Italy's most interesting contemporary houses, where modern creativity is seamlessly interwoven with historic heritage, domestic comfort, and extravagant luxury. Tour the houses of the great industrial cities of Milan, Turin, and Bari, with their preference for modern design; the art cities of Florence, Rome, and Venice, where the desire to converse with history is evident; the homes of the Italian countryside where rural culture merges with contemporary flair; and the magnificent dwellings of the coasts and the islands, which blend bold style with breathtaking views of nature. All of these exceptional homes make vividly clear why Italy has long been considered the arbiter of taste and style in the world of contemporary architecture and design.
