I designed it seven years ago, taking inspiration from the surrounding area, which is famous for its mix of architecture, juxtaposing elements, eras and styles. I live here with my wife and children, so I have considered important family considerations to create a balance between an "adult" reception space and family comfort ".

“I had good bones to work with. The house itself had great potential for its side space and 13 foot high ceilings. I mixed new and inherited pieces of art and design together with finds from auctions, galleries, flea markets and antique shops, as well as the inclusion of some bespoke pieces from my collection. A vintage game table by Paolo Buffa from the 1930s is conveniently located in the same room as a Biedermeier piece of furniture, and a series of Etruscan vases coexists with a painting by Ettore Spalletti. What binds them all together is the great craftsmanship and artistic ability. I love filling my house with contemporary art because it is closer to my period and my understanding. I invest my energy, money and time to visit museums and fairs. And I often enrich my collection with new pieces, each of which refers to a different specific moment or experience. It makes me feel alive. "

I was pleasantly surprised by the vast spaces that allow me to to breathe and to feel at ease, allowing me to easily divide the time between work and family. I also had time to admire the sunset on the walls of my living room, which becomes golden mustard when the sun disappears. The size of the windows allows you to breathe and admire the view. I notice the story that blends with the attractions of the city and makes me feel my roots here. The blood that flows under the stones that belong to your heritage and family. "

“I've changed a few things in the past few weeks, including the introduction of a 1930s bar cabinet by Osvaldo Borsani in the lobby I recently bought at auction. Now I am also realizing that I need more shelves in the library for books. Other favorite pieces are on display throughout the house: I have a red upholstered chair by Carlo Mollino, who for me was a master of architecture and design. I think he embodies everything he represents as a great example of his time. A pair of tables by Max Ingrand for Fontana Arte from the 60s has timeless beauty. My very first Spider chandelier is now suspended on the dining room table with two white monochromatic paintings by Jason Martin and Fabio Mauri. "
