Renzo Mongiardino, architect, theatrical designer, and interior designer, rejected minimalism and modernism in favor of opulent, atmospheric spaces with monumental architectural features borrowed from Ancient Greece and Rome, Byzantium, and the Renaissance.
He collaborated with some of the most renowned theatrical and cinematic directors, including Gian Carlo Menotti, Peter Hall, and Franco Zeffirelli, and brought his operatic vision to the residences of prestigious clientele including Baron de Rothschild, Aristotle Onassis, Lee Radziwill, and Valentino Garavani.
This lavish volume showcases the sumptuous harmony of classicism that defined the Mongiardino aesthetic.
