: This volume showcases a marvellous range of antiques-ranging from small works of art to rare decorative objects to precious period furniture - housed in some of the most extraordinary private residences in Italy. The homes of princes, scholars, antiquarians, professors, and magnates are presented in over two hundred of the best of images made by architectural photographer Mario Ciampi during the last twenty years. Most of these photographs are being published for the first time. The residences range in scale from magnificent grand palazzi, like the Museo Mario Praz in Rome, home to an extraordinary collection of 1200 pieces of furniture, marble, bronze, silver, and crystal works of art, to relatively more modest homes like that of the renowned art historian Frederico Zeri, which contains a priceless collection of Roman epigraphs and a vast art and photography library.
