The superb private interiors of Venice are revealed in this lavishly photographed book. This gorgeously photographed journey through entrancingly beautiful Venetian interiors is sure to appeal to Venice’s many admirers interested in the elegance and refinement of classical Old World interior design. The private properties featured in this handsome volume are not accessible to the public and most are published here for the first time. The book is a luxurious presentation of the hidden architectural and interior design treasures of Venice, ranging from historical ninth-century buildings to contemporary renovations that blend old and new. Seventy-two properties, each photographed exclusively for the book, are profiled—mainly private apartments and palazzos, along with some churches, hotels, and other public spaces that those interested in interiors will find inspiring. Author and preservation expert Toto Bergamo Rossi personally selected each property for inclusion based on his detailed field knowledge gained over many years as director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation, whose mission is to safeguard Venetian cultural heritage as manifested in architecture, music, and fine art.

Review:

"From historical ninth century buildings to private palazzos and apartments, the lavish interiors of 72 of Venice's most exclusive properties are on full display in this new hardcover."
-BOSTON HOME MAGAZINE

"What hides behind the grand façades that line the canals of Venice may be even more impressive than their ornate exteriors. But few people have had the opportunity to see these magnificent rooms—until now, that is. . .  Divided into seven chapters showcasing different neighborhoods, [Inside Venice] includes never-before-photographed homes and some of Venice’s beloved art and cultural institutions, from the Ca’ d’Oro to the Punta della Dogana, now home to the François Pinault Foundation."
-ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

"Venice has been a tourist attraction since the Renaissance for good reason: the canals, alleys, hidden gardens and outlandish architecture are like nothing else on the planet. Visitors can spend weeks wandering the city, discovering something new at every turn. There’s a hidden world, though, which almost every tourist has been missing – the dizzying, gorgeous rooms within the city’s richest residential homes. In the new book, Inside Venice: A Private View of the City’s Most Beautiful Interiors, we finally have a chance to peek inside these palazzos."
-SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST
 
"Our book today is a genuine stunnerInside Venice by Toto Bergamo Rossi,with gorgeous photographs by Jean-Francois Jaussaud.  . . all shot with a light and airy warmth quite unlike the forbidding coldness of so many such coffee table books. I’ve slowly paged my way through more such books than I can readily count, and I can’t recall one I’ve liked better than this."
-OpenLettersMonthly.com

"The Italian city of Venice has beckoned visitors for centuries, with its grand marble palaces, labyrinth of canals and artistic sensibilities. For those wanting a a peek beyond the public attractions, pick up Inside Venice: A Private View of the City's Most Beautiful Interiors."  
-FLORIDA TIMES-UNION

"Inside Venice: A Private View of the City’s Most Beautiful Interiors offers poetic views of historic and modern interiors. . . To visit a private palazzo in the late afternoon, with golden light glancing off the Grand Canal, is one of the world’s great experiences. Inside Venice offers these up-close views and a sense of being there."
-
THE STYLE SALONISTE

"Dive into the beauty of Venetian interiors in this exclusive volume of classical Old World interior design, featuring private properties only to be seen in [Inside Venice]."
